    HORRIFYING: Chief Rabbi Removes Sifrei Torah from Historic Synagogue

    The move to remove the priceless Torahs came in the wake of the repeated bombings in recent days in the capital, as well as a steady Russian advance towards the city. Being that the Russians’ fire on the area has been quite indiscriminate, with homes, educational institutions, and other civilian infrastructure being hit, there is a real fear that the synagogue could be damaged. Similarly, as civilians are abandoning their properties, a new worry about widespread looting has also emerged • Full Story, Video

    Chief Rabbi of Ukraine Moshe Azman, together with a number of local community members, removed the Torah scrolls from Kyiv’s historical Brodsky Synagogue this morning.

    The move to remove the priceless Torahs came in the wake of the repeated bombings in recent days in the capital, as well as a steady Russian advance towards the city. Being that the Russians’ fire on the area has been quite indiscriminate, with homes, educational institutions, and other civilian infrastructure being hit, there is a real fear that the synagogue could be damaged. Similarly, as civilians are abandoning their properties, a new worry about widespread looting has also emerged.

    Over the last 11 days of the war, Rabbi Azman has organized trips out of the country for countless refugees, while himself staying behind in Ukraine’s capital. The Chief Rabbi is working tirelessly that members of the community have where to go, whether in Europe or in Eretz Yisroel.

    “I will not leave Ukraine and I will not leave the Jews alone,” declared Rabbi Azman in a recent media interview, “they need me. People are hungry for bread, the elderly have no medicine, and the children are in distress.”
