Project Spotlight: 130 Immigrants Arrive in Israel From France
The Fellowship | August 10, 2021
Did you know that we never gave up on bringing Jews home to the Holy Land during this ongoing global pandemic? Even with airport closures and necessary quarantines, we have been ever more committed to bringing olim home, and our program hasn’t slowed down. In fact, we have already brought home 2,974 Jews in 2021! And recently a group of 130 olim (immigrants) arrived in Israel from France all thanks to you.
As part of our aliyah program, all olim receive financial support and help with housing and employment. Here, olim from France are taking their first steps in Israel.
Yael Eckstein, president and CEO of the IFCJ, said, “We are proud that we’ve been able to continue to bring olim to Israel, despite the ongoing challenges of the coronavirus crisis. The fact that they still long to come to Israel despite those challenges shows their commitment. It is the embodiment of Zionism.”
