Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, millions of Ukrainians have been threatened, displaced, and worse. That includes hundreds of thousands of those in Ukraine’s Jewish community. But for those Jewish people who have found themselves facing such trials and tribulations, they have found aid airlifted into Ukraine, and many have been airlifted out of Ukraine on special medical flights. And God continues to fulfill prophecy by bringing His children home to Israel, as The Jerusalem Post’s Zivka Klein reports, which now number more than 25,000 Jews who have made aliyah (immigrated) from Ukraine to Israel:

Aliyah and Integration Minister Pnina Tamano-Shata revealed on Monday that since the beginning of operation Immigrants Come Home, over 25,000 new olim have arrived in Israel from Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and Moldova.

“With great pride, I’m happy to announce that we’ve passed the 25,000 thresholds of immigrants in this operation. This proves that the State of Israel is a warm and safe home for all Jews in distress. We continue to make great government efforts to absorb the new immigrants in the best possible way.”

According to the ministry, “since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, a broad national and governmental effort to rescue and absorb new immigrants from Ukraine and neighboring countries, has led to thousands of new immigrants choosing to come to Israel.”
