Celebrating Hanukkah – and Aliyah – at the Airport

The Fellowship celebrated Hanukkah with new olim (immigrants) from Ukraine who just arrived in Israel on a Fellowship Freedom Flight! They lit a menorah in the airport to observe the special Jewish holiday and can’t wait to continue celebrating all the Jewish holidays in the Holy Land!

Arutz Sheva reports:

This morning, Minister of Aliyah and Absorption Sufa Landover held a Hanukkah candle lighting ceremony in Ben Gurion International Airport with 121 new immigrants who arrived on a special flight with the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews.

The immigrants, who arrived from Ukraine, gathered at the airport with Landover and Chairman of the International Fellowship Jeff Kaye for a celebratory Hanukkah candle lighting ceremony at the airport. The new immigrants sang Hanukkah songs and celebrated their first Hanukkah as Israelis.
