Ievgeni, 31, his wife Iryna, 39, and their daughters Marharyta, 9, and Stefania, 2, decided to make aliyah (immigrate to Israel) from Ukraine because they believe they'll be able to find peace and comfort. “We're really looking forward to starting our new life,” says Ievgeni. "We've been counting the days to our Freedom Flight with The Fellowship. Now is right time to leave Ukraine,” he continues. “Our daughter Stefania is 2 years old. Soon she'll enter nursery school where she'll be able to easily adapt. We're also happy about the fact that she'll grow up in the right environment.
The Fellowship has contributed 23 spiritual centers to the Ethiopian Jewish community throughout Israel the ensure that they maintain their religious traditions, continue to pray in the style of their ancestors, and have a home where they can celebrate life events. Recently, we dedicated the most recent Fellowship House Ethiopian Spiritual Center in the city of Rehovot.
During the summer months, Israeli children who live in orphanages, unlike other children, don't go to summer camp or join their families on trips. The children who most need to get out and have fun don't get the opportunity. To help these children feel that they are just like all other children, The Fellowship gives them a two-day, overnight outing of fun and adventure.
Joana is a 26-year-old immigrant from the Spanish city of Melilla. She recently made aliyah (immigrated to Israel) by herself on a Freedom Flight provided by The Fellowship. She feels very blessed to join such a supportive and faithful Jewish community in the Holy Land.
