Mayor S. William Collins has expressed his and the City’s support for the people of Ukraine and the scheduled Walk With Ukraine organized by Temple Beth-El and Congregation Shaaray Teflia.
“I am sure we are all shocked by the events in Ukraine and I want to thank Meghan Gray for organizing this walk and Temple Beth-El and Congregation Shaaray Teflia for sponsoring it. The scenes of towns like Glens Falls being destroyed by the Russian invasion are heartbreaking—each one is a ‘Hometown Ukraine’ like Hometown, USA. Just as the people of our Hometown USA came together during World War Two to support the fight for freedom abroad, we must come together to support this new struggle now.”
The Walk For Ukraine will begin at 1pm on March 13th at Temple Beth-EL on 3 Marion Avenue in Glens Falls and proceed down Glen Street and back up Bay Street to Congregation Shaaray Teflia. Introductory remarks will be made by Rabbi Joshua Gray of Temple Beth-El and Rabbi Norman Mendel of Congregation Shaaray Teflia.
Participants who make a donation to Global Giving in support of Ukrainian Relief will be given a Ukrainian flag. Refreshments will also be offered.
Meghan Gray appeared before the Glens Falls Board of Public Safety on March 2 for the necessary permit. For further information call Temple Beth-El at 518-792-4364 or Congregation Shaaray Teflia at 518-792-4945.
