We just received the following email from Eva Geller, a Fellowship staff member who’s in Ukraine with the next group of Ukrainian Jews set to make aliyah (immigrate to Israel) tomorrow thanks to The Fellowship.
I want to share with you the great excitement that's in the room right now with 110 olim (immigrants) in Kiev. Israeli security guards are watching the truckloads of possessions of the olim who are in the hotel with us. At 1:00 in the morning we'll go to the airport together and take off for Israel.
When I'm working, everyone knows I'm serious and a little tough. But when I look at these families and their children, I'm always tearful. I'm certain, and I know from experience, that a completely different future awaits them as children in Israel.
I'm already waiting for when we land in Israel and welcome them as only we know how to do. The other Fellowship staff here and I are full of pride and excitement.
Stay tuned for more details about this latest Fellowship Freedom Flight!
