New Immigrants From Ukraine Safely Arrive in Israel


The Fellowship welcomed 127 new olim (immigrants) from Ukraine, as they safely arrived in Israel on one of the most recent Fellowship Freedom Flights, landing at the Ben Gurion Airport this morning.

Many of the men, women, and children are refugees from war-torn Eastern Ukraine. So, although tired, the olim feel very happy to finally leave behind war and poverty and begin new lives in Israel thanks to The Fellowship and our wonderful donors!

As the olim entered the arrival terminal, they were welcomed by members of the Working and Studying Youth Movement, an Israeli youth organization.

The youth handed out Israeli flags to all the new immigrants, as well as balloons and candy to the tired but happy children.

The new olim also received Passover grants from The Fellowship, so they can purchase food and celebrate the upcoming special time for Jews. They also received sandwiches and bottled water.

Then, the olim left the terminal and Fellowship vans drove them to their new homes to begin their new lives in Israel.

They feel very blessed and so joyful to finally return home to the Jewish homeland – and it’s all thanks to our wonderful Christian and Jewish friends around the world who support our Freedom Flights!

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.
