Rewind 15 seconds

War does not determine who is right, only who is left.

The current war in Ukraine has impacted thousands of our Jewish brothers and Sisters in that region. Their lives have been turned upside down, their infrastructure has been destroyed and their focus and energy are dedicated to getting basic food and clothing and staying alive.

In this episode, we hear from Rabbi Mendel Moskovitz, who describes the scenes of war in Ukraine, his harrowing 60-hour escape, and the psychological impact the war has had on him and his family. Rabbi Moskovitz’s love for all of mankind gives us the hope that “When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will have peace.”

A big thank you to Rabbi Mendel Moskovitz for sharing his story and experiences with us.
