Uriel Shtern condemns Russian aggression, shows unity with Ukrainian people
The grade of our grief is neither higher, nor lower than what the Ukrainian nation feels. We are all together in the common distress, Uriel Shtern wrote in his Facebook.
Putin has fully destroyed the Ukrainian Jewish orthodox education. Similar happened in the world history only once – during the World War Two. This is something that can not be forgotten and forgiven. This is enough for the sentence to the fully corrupted and rotten from the inside Kremlin gang who started this bloody slaughter in Ukraine. Jewish children who were studying Tora in small groups and classes with their teachers from the USA and Israel will not able to continue their education in the nearest future. Their classes are gone. Their schools are abandoned and destroyed by Russian bombs just like in Kharkiv. These children are evacuated to different countries. Such Tora classes were all over Ukraine, but mostly concentrated in big Ukrainian cities: Kyiv, Dnieper, Odesa, Kharkiv. Now this all is gone. You will hardly find a place in Ukraine where children can be taught Tora at the present moment.
The person who did this delivered a verdict to himself. He will not find his place neither on the earth, nor in the heaven. The grade of our grief is neither higher, nor lower than what the Ukrainian nation feels. We are all together in the common distress.
