The Chief Rabbi of Ukraine has asked for Christians to recite Psalm 31 aloud. (This is only a small piece of it below) Ukraine has a sizable Jewish minority of at least 50,000 people. Historically the Jewish people have faced a lot of persecution under Russian rule.
Psalm 31 21-24
21 Praise be to the Lord,
for he showed me the wonders of his love
when I was in a city under siege.
22 In my alarm I said,
“I am cut off from your sight!”
Yet you heard my cry for mercy
when I called to you for help.
23 Love the Lord, all his faithful people!
The Lord preserves those who are true to him,
but the proud he repays in full.
24 Be strong and take heart,
all you who hope in the Lord.

Thank You for sharing, Eve
Thanks be to God. I have recited this Psalm aloud in solidarity with the God-fearing citizens of Ukraine.
Thank you for posting this to bring our attention to the real concerns of our Jewish sisters and brothers. Centuries of history validate their worries especially when military conflict and oppression are at the center of their fears. It seems that brutality has a way of repeating old habits.
I have said it for ALL those in Ukraine and the cities, gid fearing or not, for ALL.
