Writing at The Jerusalem Post, Jacob Goff Klein reports that The Fellowship‘s latest Freedom Flight arrived on the 70th anniversary of the U.N.’s vote to recognize the state of Israel. This flight on November 29 brought 201 immigrants home!

Klein tells us more:

“November 29 was the landmark event that preceded the founding of the State of Israel and opened her doors to enable the return of thousands of Jews to their homeland,” said The IFCJ’s Founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein.

“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate this day than with the arrival of 201 new immigrants. Simultaneously, we must express our gratitude to the countries that voted in favor of a home for the Jewish people. Already 70 year ago, we had friends in the world; and today there are hundreds of millions of non-Jewish supporters who say every day, ‘yes’ to Israel!”.
