New York, NY. – On Monday March 21st at 5 pm there will be a Ukrainian Benefit at the Actor’s Temple Monday March 21, 2022 The Historic Temple is at 339 West 47th Street in the Heart of the Theater District since 1917. Temple members have included some of the legends in the entertainment world, go to http://www.theactorstemple.org and be amazed by the people who have graced the stage at the Actor’s Temple.
This Ukrainian Benefit hits home for the Jewish community, as many Ukrainians are Jewish including the President Zelenskyy , who lost family in the Holocaust. Paul Sladkus, a believer in the Actor’s Temple states. “ The current WAR, instigated by Russia is a sad commentary on humanity in 2022, being involved with Peace Day for over 20 years as a producer, and whose grandparents come from bordering countries to the Ukraine I am very angry that this is happening and praise the Temple for this benefit. I personally am honored as I was able to invite the Choir of St. Volodymyr Cathedral, with Conductor Nataliya Vashchenko and Pastor Rev. Volodymyr Muzychka to attend and sing the Ukrainian National Anthem, the magnificent church is at 160W 82nd Street, New York, NY 10024”
The event will be very interesting, music will be performed by Aron Bederson & Paul Sladkus, the wonderful Rabbi Jill Hausman will welcome the community, Carol Ostrow who is President of the Temple and producer of the event will share thoughts.
