Since the arrival of the first Jewish refugees, all members of the community, whether they are orthodox, secular, Sephardic or Ashkenazi worked together under the umbrella of the Kultusgemeinde to assist our fellow Jews in need.
Make a donation and be part of our common effort to helo Jewish refugees from Ukraine!
This is how the Jewish Community of Vienna provides direct assistance to Jewish refugees from Ukraine:
- The community has rented hundreds of appartments in order provide a permanent, safe and dignified accommodation of the refugees. All this is made possible through donations like yours.
- Members of the community donate apartments or rooms
- When the war started, community members donated empty hotels to provide a first shelter for the refugees. Now that the community is focussing on long term rentals, the ad hoc shelter in hotels could be phased out.
- One-time financial assistance for every adult (250€) and child (150€) who could not provide their own.
- Jewish Schools organize free classes in Russian for children who found refuge in Vienna
- The specialists from the community organization ESRA provide the necessary care for those affected by the trauma from war and fleeing the country
- Medical care including COVID screening and vaccinations
- Members of the community organize buses to facilitate a safe journey to Vienna
- Volunteers clean apartments, transport goods and work hands on to keep the infrastructure for all assistance up and running.
Be part of our mutual effort to aid Jews in need!
