Tensions in Ukraine have increased over the last few months, which is why The Fellowship – powered by our faithful donors – continues to bring these Jews home to Israel. The latest group of new olim (immigrants) share how frightening the situation really is in Ukraine today:
“Mines and shrapnel were fired at any random part of the city. We were forced to seek shelter in the improvised bombing shelters on a regular basis. The truth is that this war is still ongoing and therefore we constantly live with a fear of the renewed combat activities,” they said...
Tensions between Kiev and Moscow have been intensifying over the last three months after Russia seized three Ukrainian vessels in November that were sailing off the coast of Crimea, a region annexed by the Russian Federation in 2014.
“The Fellowship invests tremendous resources in Olim and Aliyah, helping Jews from 29 different countries move to Israel,” said Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, Founder and President of the IFCJ.
