Almost 1-Year Since the War Began, 90 Ukrainian Refugees Arrive in Israel
The Fellowship | February 14, 2023
Thanks to Fellowship friends around the world, we have been on the ground assisting Ukrainian Jewish refugees for almost one year. These refugees have been forced out of their homes because of the war, and we continue to help them make aliyah (immigrate to Israel) and return home, reports Arutz Sheva:
90 Ukrainian Jewish refugees arrived in Israel to begin a new chapter of their lives on Wednesday, February 8, on a chartered flight made possible by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ). The group joined more than 15,000 people who have already made aliya since the outbreak of the war in late February 2022. While the majority of the refugee immigrants arrived in the early weeks and months of the conflict after fleeing westward into Poland and Moldova, recent efforts by Israel’s Ministry of Immigrant Absorption and partner agencies have focused on helping those who chose to stay behind but were later forced out of their homes by the fighting.
