Allilous Prayer, 80th anniversary of the Holodomor (Ukrainian-Hebrew)”

Hebrew Orthodox prayer for the departed (Panachyda/Панахида in Ukrainian) and all the victims who died during the Holodomor in Ukrainian and Hebrew; it is the 80th anniversary of the mass murder, often considered as a genocide. Famine/hunger mass murder organized by the Soviet leaders in 1932-33, also perished Poles, Czech, Jews, Gypsies-Romas, and other people who lived in Ukraine. Dr. Raphael Lemkin considered that the situation was comparable to a “genocide”, word that he had defined after World War II. I am the spiritual director of the “Association of the Ukrainians in the Holy Land” and always introduce some Ukrainian as Jews and Ukrainians live in full peaceful and respectful ways in Israel, a sign of forgiveness and atonement.
