Urgent Appeal from Rabbi Shalom Dov Ber Stambler and Rabbi Mayer Stambler, Warsaw אחב״י ה׳ עליהם יחיו


Please give generously!

As you are well aware, there is a major war in Ukraine, the likes of which Europe hasn’t seen since the Second World War in terms of the scale of destruction, violence and civilian death. 

A large part of the tragedy is the millions of refugees and tens of thousands of Jews who are escaping the war zone – including thousands who are streaming across the border into Poland. 

We don’t have the luxury of watching it from afar and offering sympathy – they are arriving literally on our doorstep. 

We have to respond and act. Hundreds are calling daily, from both sides of the border, begging for assistance.

Current Activities – this is what our emergency operation consists of:

  • Accommodations for 200 people per night in an assortment of apartments, hotels, and other facilities 

  • Food for 400 people, including some hot meals and other basics, served in our center and by delivery

  • Transportation from the border to Warsaw and from Warsaw to their next destinations 

  • Additional Support consisting of medical care, psychologists, medicines, diapers and other needs


This is a massive operation that is above & beyond our normal capacity & resources. We’re doing it because there is no one else. 


One example: as a temporary emergency measure, due to a huge shortage of beds, we rented an entire hotel in Warsaw to house Hundreds of refugees from Ukraine. The total bill will be $275,000 for this month (March) alone. 

Urgent Accommodation is needed now for 200 refugees for the entire coming month incl. Passover Until April 30th.
