Helping lead the traditional Seder meal in Warsaw will be a Ukrainian American Jew descended from Holocaust survivors who left Ukraine for Israel as a child. She is in Poland aiding Ukrainian refugees who fled their homeland because of the Russian invasion.

The Jewish Federations of North America, which have raised $50 million to aid Ukraine, will also help sponsor Passover Seders on Friday in other major European cities that have taken in Ukrainian refugees, including Budapest, Hungary.

While they’ve been able to help thousands of Jewish refugees get safely to Israel and to other destinations in Europe, Sazonov said, they haven’t limited their assistance to Jewish Ukrainians.

“I believe in the concept of Tikkun olam, which means taking care of everybody, as well as the Jews,” Sazonov said. “I believe this is our obligation, our duty to the world.”
