Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians are fleeing to surrounding areas of Poland, Moldova, and Romania, and many of those refugees are from the Jewish community and will be flying home to Israel soon. Along with our partners, we are assisting Ukrainian Jews as they escape war-torn cities by bringing them home on flights to Israel, with flights scheduled for arrival on Sunday, reports the Times of Israel:

Hundreds of Ukrainian Jews fleeing the ongoing war will land in Israel at the beginning of next week, the Jewish Agency for Israel said Wednesday.

The refugees will immigrate to Israel on three separate flights, leaving from Poland, Moldova and Romania.

They will reach Israel on Sunday.

“These olim (Jewish immigrants) escaped the harrowing fighting in Ukraine and were assisted by aliyah (immigration to Israel) centers operated by the Jewish Agency and International Fellowship of Christians and Jews in four bordering countries,” the Jewish Agency said.
