The Fellowship continues to bring home French olim (immigrants) seeking refuge in Israel on Freedom Flights. On the most recent flight, Eva Saban, whose brother-in-law was killed in a French kosher supermarket, felt blessed to be one of these olim. Writers at the Jerusalem Post tell us more.

Eva Saban was one of 150 French Jews who arrived at Ben-Gurion Airport on Tuesday evening aboard a flight sponsored by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews…

Her brother-in-law Philippe Braham was one of four people killed after being taken hostage in the kosher supermarket, shortly after the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack…

According to the fellowship, about 80% of the olim come from suburbs of Paris, where there are large Muslim populations, and have expressed living in a state of tension and even persecution. Many of the parents said they sought a better and safer future for their children in Israel.
