Action for Post-Soviet Jewry
A host for each Warm House and her friends shop and prepare a hot home cooked meal for approximately 12 guests in a neighborhood apartment, using $50 from Action to purchase the food. Guests meet either monthly or on major Jewish and secular holidays to enjoy a nutritious meal that they would not be able to afford themselves. Over dinner, they talk, sing, dance, and celebrate Jewish Holidays and birthdays. The April Warm House hosts a Pesach Seder.
In a number of cities we serve, these gatherings are the only organized Jewish event in their community. Some guests are old friends and some are new friends, but those who attend become a close knit group who support one another in sickness and in health. At present Action for Post-Soviet Jewry supports 10 Warm Houses in Eastern Ukraine.
On a recent trip to Eastern Europe, Action joined a Warm House gathering in Ukraine.
Action gives each Warm House host funds to purchase fresh fruits, vegetables and meat, that they would not be able to buy on their own.
Thanks to our donors, the table is set and the guests are arriving at another Warm House in Eastern Europe.
