How Jews in Ukraine will celebrate Passover
April 15, 2022
(Chabad.org/News via JNS) — They will be in shelters, private homes, refugee camps, synagogues and military bases.

After all, even during the harshest of times — when Stalin’s minions hunted down and shot Jews caught passing on Judaism to the next generation — millions of Soviet Jews, half of whom lived in Ukraine, clung to these precious Passover rituals.
