Consul General of Ukraine to Speak at JCRC Freedom Seder

For Immediate Release
March 31, 2022

San Francisco, CA – Dmytro Kushneruk, Consul General of Ukraine in San Francisco, will speak at the JCRC Freedom Seder of the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) on Monday, April 4, 2022. Consul General Kushneruk plans to address the crushing situation in Ukraine during wartime, the expanding refugee crisis that has already displaced more the two million people, and the critical need for humanitarian aid at this time.

“We are proud to give a platform for Consul General Kushneruk to address our community in this critical moment,” Tye Gregory, CEO of JCRC, said. “JCRC believes for the Jewish community to thrive, we must work together with our neighbors to build a more pluralistic, equitable and educated democratic society. Lifting up the Ukrainian people, and our local Ukrainian community in San Francisco, is no exception.”

The JCRC Freedom Seder is a participatory, cross-cultural, interfaith exchange, that honors one of the most important Jewish holidays of the year and celebrates our community as an upholder of freedom. This is the event’s 26th year, and it is being hosted and co-sponsored by Grace Cathedral.

In-person seating for this year’s Seder has already sold out, but a virtual option for attendance still remains.

The Jewish Community Relations Council of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin, Sonoma, Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, brings together and strengthens the Bay Area Jewish community. By building bridges and working in coalition with diverse ethnic, faith, political and civic communities, JCRC is strengthening the pillars of a healthy society that Jews and our neighbors need to thrive, together.
