¨From the Rabbi’s Study¨

The impeachment hearings this week centered on Presidents Trump’s alleged attempts to convince the Ukrainian government to investigate certain corruptions identified by some as politically motivated. I have no inclination to weigh in on this sensitive and divisive issue.

I do however wish to share with you my thoughts on Ukraine given the fact that I have visited Ukraine three times including the cities of Kiev, Zhitomir, Berditchev, Uman and Odessa. While each one of the experiences was somewhat different there was one basic common denominator; anti-Semitism. There is a monument in central square Kiev of the notorious Khmelnytsky and of course the Babi- Yar massacre needs no explanation. The Jews were buried alive by Ukrainian collaborators with German encouragement and cruelty. There were no shortages of pogroms throughout the countryside and Nikita Krushchev received good training before becoming secretary general of the Soviet Union by ruling Ukraine with an iron hand.

I saw firsthand public drunkenness, extreme poverty, and third-world culture. I remember vividly that our plane was delayed and we arrived late in the evening at Kiev airport. While waiting for our luggage the workers just shut off the lights and went home. We never got our passports stamped and had quite a time explaining to the exit officers how we got into the country in the first place. It was therefore quite shocking to hear Senate testimony about the Ukrainian attempts to create a country similar to Western Europe and the United States. I hope they and we succeed. In the meantime I will praise our country and thank Hashem every day for the privilege of the freedoms we have and the right to worship freely.

Good Shabbos
Rabbi A. M. Abramson
