Fellowship Freedom Flights have helped thousands of Jewish people make aliyah (immigrate to Israel) in recent years. While the flight to the Holy Land is a big part of what we provide for these immigrants, it’s certainly not the only thing we provide. In order to help prepare new olim (immigrants) for the first stage of their new lives in Israel, and to guarantee their absorption will be ultimately successful, we host aliyah seminars, a series of informative lectures by experts in the field about their first steps in Israel, including job searching and navigating the health care and education system in Israel.

Freezing winter temperatures are an inconvenience to most of us, but are life-threatening to impoverished elderly in Israel and the former Soviet Union (FSU) who often can’t afford both food and medicine, let alone the added cost of heating their humble homes. Learn how The Fellowship is helping.
Fellowship-supported Hesed is a network of Jewish community centers and social services that provides lifesaving aid to impoverished Jews throughout the former Soviet Union. Hesed means lovingkindness in Hebrew, and that’s exactly what Hesed homecare workers provide when they visit elderly shut-ins who need help with daily tasks as well as caring companionship. This Fellowship-supported network offers a lifeline for those in need, as well as for those offering the compassionate care, such as Irina.
The needy in Israel aren’t just Jewish; there are also impoverished Christians who struggle every day with the impossible decision of buying food or medicine. They simply don’t have enough money for both. The realities of poverty sting even more at the holidays. To help these Christians in need, The Fellowship has provided supermarket vouchers to hundreds of needy Christian families throughout Israel. These vouchers will help the families celebrate the upcoming Christmas holiday with dignity.
Fellowship-supported Tikva Children’s Home cares for homeless, abandoned, and abused Jewish children in Ukraine and neighboring regions of the former Soviet Union. Through their three children’s homes – an infants’ and toddlers’ home for ages 0-6, a girls’ home for ages 7-16, and a boys’ home for ages 7-16 – they provide loving care and a quality education that emphasizes Jewish faith. The goal is to empower the children to grow into self-sufficient individuals who give back to the community.
