The Fellowship‘s aliyah program will bring even more Jews home this summer! Writers at Breaking Israel News tell us more.

This week jumpstarts a massive summer marathon of aliyah (immigration) flights sponsored by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (The Fellowship), which will bring 2,300 olim (new immigrants) from 15 countries to Israel within the next three months.

In just this week alone, 382 olim from six countries will arrive in Israel on flights with The Fellowship, in what will be a 12-week series of airlifts bringing some 2,300 olim to Israel throughout the upcoming summer months. This will bring the total number of olim The Fellowship has gathered to Israel so far in 2017 to 3,900…

During the first half of 2017, The Fellowship was responsible for bringing 47 percent of all the olim coming from countries where the organization is active, an increase from the 41 percent in 2016.
