Pesach is kosher in the Ukrainian army
Matsu, wine, hagadot, and necessities were sent to hundreds of Jewish soldiers scattered throughout Ukraine.
As some are in difficult combat zones and unable to gather, they received holiday gifts.
For those who can get together, one of the military bases hosted an Easter Seder for Jewish soldiers from Jewish communities and those who are meeting for the first time.
Rabbi Hillel Cohen, who took care of this, greeted the soldiers and wished them to return home with a great victory.
Rabbi Cohen wished the Ukrainian soldiers Jews, with the blessing “Next year in the built Jerusalem”.
The commander of the Ukrainian base was very excited and thanked the Jewish military doctor Michael Yoni Gershevsky, a paramedic of the Rescue Union of Ukraine, and thanked the Union of Rescuers of Ukraine for handing over an ambulance that will serve tens of thousands of citizens and soldiers.
On behalf of the soldiers, soldier Yasha Kraminsky spoke about how difficult it is to celebrate Passover far from home during the war, but he is confident of a good victory over evil, as in the Exodus from Egypt.
