Yesterday, a group of 225 new immigrants arrived in Israel on the latest Fellowship Freedom Flight, most from the war-torn area of eastern Ukraine.
Although tired, the new immigrants were happy to be home in Israel, where, thanks to The Fellowship, they're finally free of the fighting and confusion of their homeland.
David Berger, former Canadian Ambassador to Israel and member of the IFCJ-Canada Board of Directors, was at the airport to greet the newest Israelis. They were also welcomed by the singing of members of the Bnei Akiva youth movement, as well as IDF soldiers. Fellowship staff members and volunteers handed out balloons, Israeli flags, and candy to the happy but tired children.
This aliyah (immigration to Israel) flight was possible thanks to The Fellowship’s North American donors. In addition to the travel costs, participants received a stipend to help them settle into their new homes in Israel.
Let’s keep these new immigrants to Israel in our prayers!
