Yesterday 105 new olim (immigrants) from France arrived at Ben Gurion Airport on the latest Fellowship Freedom Flights. These brand-new Israelis were greeted with singing, balloons, and Israeli flags by Fellowship staff and volunteers.
The olim told us how happy and grateful they are to the Fellowship donors who helped bring them home to Israel. Many spoke of the fact that they made aliyah (immigrating to Israel) as the culmination of a long-held dream and for the future of their children.
They were immediately taken to a Fellowship Absorption Seminar, where we helped prepare them for the first stage of their new lives in Israel. Over the coming weeks and months we will work to ensure that their assimilation into Israeli life will be successful.
