Heartfelt Thanks for the Fellowship Freedom Flight from Uruguay

Olivier Fitoussi

In the final weeks of 2015, The Fellowship flew our first Freedom Flight from Uruguay to Israel, ushering 10 Jews from the city of Montevideo to their new life in the Holy Land.

These brand-new Israelis were greeted by youth from the Fellowship-funded Acharai community service project who were sporting signs, balloons, Israeli flags, and huge smiles of welcome.  

Sara and Juan were among those making aliyah (immigrating to Israel) on that flight. We recently received the following thank-you letter from their son-in-law.  

Good Afternoon,

On December 23, 2015, my father-in-law and mother-in-law (Juan and Sara) made aliyah from Uruguay. 

Both my wife and I would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to The Fellowship for the close accompaniment, the great care, and all the help that was given and is still given during the absorption process in Israel.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,

Shevy and Sharon 

Thank you, Fellowship friends, for making this kind of lifesaving help possible!

Passover a Sacred Time to Save Lives

Help the Unseen

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
