65K raised for displaced Ukrainian Jews

Alex Nason, chair of the Fort Worth B’nai B’rith Lodge Ukrainian fundraising event, is pictured with a check for The Jewish Agency for Israel. The group raised $65,000 to save 52 Ukrainian Jews being airlifted by the Jewish Agency to Israel. The 13 displaced families are leaving from Romania, Moldova and Hungary. “Our event again proved that the Jewish community in Tarrant County comes together to take care of our Jewish Ukrainian brothers and sisters in peril,” said Nason. An overflow crowd of 275 from all over Dallas/Fort Worth attended the February event.
