Letter: My 74-year-old Aunt, a Jewish widow in Ukraine

Dear Lakewood Scoop Readers:

I’ve never really done anything remotely like this before, so here goes. My Aunt Maya S. Is a 74 year old Jewish widow in Ukraine.

Her region zhitomir was bombed out but her town right near zhitomir is thankfully ok for now. I NEED TO GET HER OUT NOW BEFORE ITS TOO LATE. She has a variety of ailments and is really all alone in a bombed out town. BH my Rabbi has arranged to get her out to Poland tomorrow Beh. We want to bring her home to us in Florida. It is a very long and complicated and expensive journey to get her here . I can’t really go into the details now . But please dear brothers and sisters. I want to get my aunt home safely.

Please pray for her that she makes it out okay.

Maya Bas Basya.

I will keep you updated and may HaShem grant you all blessings.

You can verify my story with our Rabbi at the local Chabad here in Orlando. Rabbi Amram Hoffer.
