Temple member Wendy Gerber shares her personal experiences on Temple Emanu-El’s mission to Poland and the Ukrainian Border in The New York Daily News.
“I left Poland, but part of my heart remains there. While it’s difficult to hear these stories, it’s important. Bombs erase lives in a moment, and leave scars that last a lifetime.”
From May 26 to May 30, 2022, Temple Emanu-El organized a Humanitarian Mission to Poland and the Ukrainian Border, during which the Emanu-El community answered conscience’s call, bringing much needed supplies, showing comfort to those fleeing the war, and bearing witness both to their suffering and the extraordinary efforts of the agencies offering relief from that suffering.
