Also this week in Israel in the News:
- At the United Nations this week, a total of 10 resolutions against Israel were passed in a single day. An official from UN Watch called the resolutions a “farce,” saying, “The goal of these ritual, one-sided condemnations remains the scapegoating of Israel.”
- A Palestinian terrorist who stabbed two Israelis a year ago was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
- Israel this week celebrated a brand-new holiday, Aliyah Day, which honors the ongoing immigration of Jews from around the world to the Holy Land. The Fellowship has funded aliyah for more than 20 years, regularly bringing new immigrants to Israel through its On Wings of Eagles program.
This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s Senior Vice President Yael Eckstein with words of encouragement following the U.S. presidential election.
