Fellowship Freedom Flights give Ukrainian families a chance to escape war and start over in Israel. Writers at Ynet News tell us more about the success of the most recent Fellowship Freedom Flight, which included 78 families, four Holocaust survivors, and over 40 children!

Right before Passover, 230 new immigrants from Ukraine landed in Ben Gurion Airport early Tuesday as part of the Freedom Flight organized by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) headed by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein…

Olski and Irina L. came to Israel with their daughter from the city of Dnipropetrovsk. According to them, "Life in Ukraine has become life without a future, especially for families with children. Because of the continuing war, the economic situation is also terrible. For us it was clear, if we are looking for a future for our children, it is better to do it in the land of Israel."
