A Fellowship Freedom Flight just arrived in Tel Aviv with a planeload of 150 French Jews who will begin new lives in Israel! Writers at Arutz Sheva tell us more.

“We have been wanting to make aliyah for a while, but after the terror attack at the Hyper Cacher we were left with no doubts. We are living in fear,” Saban said. “Our children go to an Orthodox school and as they leave the building they remove the kippah (skullcap) from their head. We no longer are sure of what we would like to do next, but we are confident that this is the right move for our children, and we pray to God it will all work out.”

“Aliyah has always been and is still a determining factor in Israeli society. The olim coming on aliyah from France have experienced some terrible incidents of hatred directed at them for one reason only – simply because they are Jewish,” said Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, President of the IFCJ.
