Project Spotlight: Olim Receive Emergency Aid for Passover

The Fellowship is taking extraordinary measures during these extraordinary times to help those who have recently made aliyah (immigrated to Israel) on Fellowship Freedom Flights. New olim (immigrants) usually need a little help starting their new lives in the Holy Land. But now the pandemic is making things like finding a job or school for their children even more difficult. Thankfully, our staff and volunteers are on the ground in Israel helping God’s people. We are safely delivering food cards before Passover to 45 families of recent olim. These immigrants have been laid off or are struggling financially due to the pandemic.

This means we helped people like the Rudnyi family, a Ukrainian family who made aliyah with The Fellowship.  They received a food card so they can celebrate Passover with matzah with their 8 and 4 year old.
