The Fellowship continues to expand its aliyah (immigration) efforts, with two more Freedom Flights landing this week with nearly 300 olim (immigrants) from France and Ukraine. The Jerusalem Post reports that more such flights this summer will bring 2,000 Jewish immigrants from 15 countries to their historic and biblical home in the Holy Land:

The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews is funding two “Freedom Flights to Israel” this week, one from France and another from Ukraine. The first plane to touch down at Ben-Gurion Airport will carry 83 adults and children, who The Fellowship says are the first of 500 French Jews making aliyah on one of its flights. The second, carrying 200 Ukrainian immigrants, will land later in the day.

The Fellowship said it planned to bring some 2,000 Jews from 15 countries to Israel this summer.

What began as monthly aliyah flights to rescue Jewish refugees from war-torn Ukraine has quickly blossomed into a robust immigration operation that brings Jews from Lugansk, Lyon, Barcelona and Buenos Aires and Melilla (a Spanish autonomous city in North Africa), and from other countries in between, among them Moldova, Brazil, France, Russia, Uruguay, Bolivia, Azerbaijan, Argentina and several Arab states, the organization said.

“Now that The Fellowship is providing a more streamlined, personalized aliyah alternative to the old, bureaucratic way of doing things, the skies have become a lot friendlier for olim,” said Fellowship President and Founder Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein...
