The Association of Jewish Libraries expresses deep concern for and solidarity with the people of Ukraine. We are devastated over the loss of life and destruction of property and wish to offer support in any way we can to assist in this very difficult situation. There are many important Judaica collections in Ukraine, including in the state libraries, archives large and small, museums, and university collections in the hard-hit cities of Kharkiv and Kyiv, as well as throughout the country. We are hoping and praying for the safety and care of the custodians of these collections, many of whom are friends and colleagues, and for their families and the broader Ukrainian nation. Please know that we stand with you in these trying times.
