The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece addressed, on March 1st 2022, the following letter to the President of the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine Mr. Boris Lozhkin and the Chief Rabbi of Ukraine and Treasurer of the EJC Executive Rabbi Yaakov Dov Bleich expressing the solidarity of the Greek Jewry to the Jews of Ukraine regarding the attack of Russia on Ukraine.

“Dear Mr. President,

Dear Chief Rabbi,

Our Board and the Greek Jewry as a whole, are closely monitoring the tragedy and the hardships that the Ukrainian people and the Jewish Community have been suffering since the military attack of Russia against Ukraine.

We are shocked by the horrific scenes of war in Ukrainian cities. Our concerns, prayers and thoughts are with you as leaders and with our brothers and sisters of the Jewish Community of Ukraine. During difficult times like these, we may be disheartened in realizing how little the world has learned from the devastation of past wars and atrocities, yet we grow stronger, more determinate and more motivated to continue our work for peace and welfare, against injustice and oppression of human rights.

In the spirit of solidarity and brotherly bonding, we wish to assure you that our Board and the Greek Jewish Community stand by your side, and are ready to assist you in case of any necessity. Please do not hesitate to contact us.

We hope that soon the war will be over, that peace will prevail and the people of Ukraine will be safe. 

Truly Yours,

The President DAVID SALTIEL

The Secretary General VICTOR ELIEZER”
