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!
