Poltava

Through their work, the Poltava Committee enables our progressive sister congregation, Congregation Beth Am in Poltava, Ukraine, to reach out to young Jewish families to help them rediscover their Judaism.

Being Jewish in the Ukraine is not easy -- discrimination is rampant and funds are almost non-existent. The funds raised by the Poltava Committee, including a portion of Beth Am members' contributions to the World Union for Progressive Judaism, go to support the religious and education programs and operations of Poltava's Jewish community. Whether it's Shabbat services, Passover Seders, Chanukah celebrations or B'nei Mitzvah twinning opportunities, our support helps make it happen.
 
Our Committee meets regularly to plan fundraisers, such as home-cooked Shabbat dinners after services (that are eagerly anticipated and well attended), arts & craft fairs and "Poltava Parties" at member homes.
 
Donations to the Poltava Fund help us carry out our vision of tikkun olam. To learn more, please contact Cherie or call (650) 493-4661.
