FOR MANY years, my husband Michael and I have supported the Jewish community in Dnepr, Ukraine (also known as Dnepropetrovsk and previously as Yekaterinoslav). It has been the natural thing for both of us to do in memory of both our families from the area, and to keep the bond alive.

We thank the Creator and so very often think about the providence which made the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, send a young couple, Rabbi Shmuel and Channa Kaminetsky, back in 1991 to the place of his childhood and youth, the place where his father had been chief rabbi for about four decades, the place which had been so vital for the Rebbe himself, to restore Jewish life there.
