In Support of Peace

March 1, 2022

Dear Members of the Brandeis Community, 

It has been difficult for me, as I am sure it has for you, to watch the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. As one who has studied and spent time in both Russia and Ukraine, I have great admiration for its culture and people. As a community steeped in the Jewish tradition of seeking to repair the world, I know I speak on behalf of many at Brandeis in calling for the end of hostilities and needless human suffering.  
I also want to express our collective concern for those within our community whose families and loved ones are being directly affected by the crisis in the region. May this conflict end quickly and in peaceful resolution.
