Three Aliya Flights Bringing Immigrants from Ukraine and Germany Arrive in Israel Tomorrow

DnepSeder2 Dozens of Jewish Refugees from War-Torn Eastern Ukraine Celebrate Passover at Jewish Agency Refugee Center Ahead of Aliyah

 

Some 200 new immigrants and participants in Jewish Agency teen programs will land in Israel tomorrow September 1, aboard three flights, two from Ukraine and one from Germany.

The three flights from Ukraine and Germany include both immigrants and participants in The Jewish Agency’s Selah and Na’ale programs for Jewish teenagers from some 30 cities and towns across Ukraine and Germany age is 17 1/2. Most of the new arrivals from Ukraine have been coming from the embattled areas in the eastern part of that country.

Ukraine was the second-largest source of Aliyah (immigration to Israel) in 2015, with some 7, 000 immigrants, compared to 2, 000 just two years prior.

Aliyah from Germany, though smaller in scale, has also seeing a significant increase, rising 50% last year. Some 85% of the German Jewish community is made up of individuals who immigrated to that country from the former Soviet Union. Many of the young families making Aliyah tomorrow will spend their first six months in Israel living on kibbutzim as part of The Jewish Agency’s First Home in the Homeland program.

In the past week, thousands of people have attended Jewish Agency opportunity fairs for potential immigrants in St. Petersburg, Kharkov, and Dnepropetrovsk.

In job fairs, participants met with representatives of government ministries, employers, and Israeli municipalities and received both general information and individual counseling. Additionally, a seminar aimed at strengthening Jewish identity and connections to Israel took place in Odessa this past weekend and was attended by some 100 people from around the region.

As Jewish Agency representative in Odessa Marina Ben Aryeh said, “We hope that after this workshop, the participants will not only know a lot more about Israel, but will also better understand its meaning for the Jewish people and for every individual Jew.”

Organized in partnership with Keren Hayesod-UIA, Christians for Israel, and Ebenezer International. The new arrivals will be greeted by Chairman of the Executive of The Jewish Agency for Israel Natan Sharansky and Minister of Aliyah and Immigrant Absorption Sofa Landver at a festive welcome ceremony at Ben-Gurion International Airport.
