Jewish Issues in Wartime Ukraine

Vitaly Chernoivanenko
Wednesday, April 27, 2022
12:00-1:30 PM
Off Campus Location
In his talk, Vitaly Chernoivanenko, a Jewish Ukrainian researcher, will speak about the Ukrainian Jewish community and how, along with other Ukrainian communities, it has confronted recent Russian invasion and brutal aggression. What does it mean, both broadly and in this specific example, to decide to leave or stay in a country embroiled in war? Is there solidarity and assistance from other Jews worldwide, including Israel? What is the place of Ukrainian Jewish Studies and Ukrainian academics in these extreme times? Prof. Chernoivanenko will discuss these questions, and share his personal experiences and reflections during this war.
