American Jewish community to resettle Ukrainian refugees

(JNS) — The White House is testing a unique solution to the growing Ukraine refugee crisis. The American Jewish community is testing its response.

The administration of U.S. President Joe Biden has launched a direct sponsorship program for Ukrainian refugees called Uniting for Ukraine, which will serve as a major piece of the president’s pledge to accept up to 100,000 refugees in the United States. A new online portal started accepting applications, where individual Americans, as well as private and public organizations, can apply to financially sponsor a Ukrainian for travel from Europe.
