Seeking Rescue from War and Hate

Many Fragile Lives at Risk!
Fleeing the war-ravaged city of Donetsk, Ukraine last year, Oksana left her simple home hoping to find work in Kiev. With the growing uncertainty, she was forced to make the heart-wrenching choice to send her son Eldar to live with a relative far from the conflict.
For over a year, Oksana struggled to find regular work and many apartment landlords would not accept refugees from the towns devastated by the warespecially Jewish refugees.
Tragically, the conflict in Ukraine has impacted thousands of vulnerable Jews, including families, the elderly, and even Holocaust survivors.
But there is good news!  Because of the prayers and gifts of faithful friends like you, Oksana was told about Aliyah Emergency Freedom Flights to Israel with The Fellowship. For the first time, Oksana felt hope and joy knowing she and Eldar would once again be together.
And this is why I am writing you today. With your faithful monthly gift to The Fellowship,many more Emergency Freedom Flights can provide critical escape and hope to Jews who are trapped in Ukraine and the former Soviet Union.  Your regular gift will allow Jewish families to reunite and frail elderly to be relieved from the constant fear of war and devastation.
Even as Israel is working vigorously to stop daily lone-wolf terror attacks, Oksana has found peace and greater safety in the Holy Land.  She exclaimed, “We can learn how to live again – if we know what we are living for!”
Your compassionate monthly gift or your very best gift today can be the hope, provision, and dignity needed among the Jewish people who have already suffered far too much.
Thank you in advance for your faithful response.  May God bless you as you bless Israel!
With prayers for shalom, peace,

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
President and Founder
