Latest Fellowship Freedom Flight from War-Torn Ukraine Lands in Israel

Daniel Bar On

The Fellowship’s latest Freedom Flight landed safely in Israel this morning, ushering 55 Ukrainian Jews from war-torn eastern Ukraine to their new home in the Holy Land.

As the olim (immigrants) entered the arrivals terminal, they were welcomed by The Fellowship’s Yael Eckstein and by students from Fellowship-supported Beit Ulpana, a high school for young women from the former Soviet Union who made aliyah (immigrated to Israel) without the rest of their families.

The young women handed out food and Israeli flags to all of the happy but tired olim, and gave balloons to the children. Yael spoke with the brand-new Israelis, and her assurances that The Fellowship will see them through the transition ahead warmed their hearts.

Finally the 55 olim loaded into vans that took them to their new homes, where they will start their new lives in Israel, at last free from the chaos of Ukraine and home in the land of their forefathers.
