Aid Ukraine

Please donate to help Jewish families in the Ukraine to prepare for their return to Israel!

'Come! Come! Flee from the land of the north,' declares the Lord.  ∼ Zechariah 2:6

With the current situation in the Ukraine, the Jewish people are now listening more than ever to the call to return to Israel - the land of their forefathers. We have encouraged them for almost 25 years to leave the land of the north and go to the Promised Land. Now it is time for the Jews to choose for Israel! Not for Europe or Russia, but for the land given to them by the G'd of Israel.

Please pray for the situation in the Ukraine, for the Jewish people, for the churches and for the local people.

Christians for Israel has set up a special fund to help Jewish people to prepare themselves to make aliyah (emigrate to Israel). With your donation we will:

First Home in the Homeland - update August 2017

Our hectic month of August continues! Over 100 families (most of them from the former Soviet Union) will arrive until September 2017 to the various kibbutzim all over the country. This week kibbutz Urim (17 km from the Gaza strip) welcomed two new olim families, one of them from Ukraine (Harkov) and the second from Russia (Kaliningrad). Our First Home in the Homeland volunteer in kibbutz Nikol Boiko had a busy week, preparing apartments for their arrival.

Generation of survivors!

Some time ago we visited the family of Anatoly Melnik. They have one daughter, a son-in-law and a grandson. We learned many interesting details from this family’s history. Anatoly’s mother miraculously escaped the Babi Yar shooting, but his grandmother was shot on September 30, 1941. For many years Anatoly's mother wanted to go to Israel with her son's family. But they were not sure about their plans. Ultimately she decided to fly on her own and died a week before her flight to Israel.

Rabbi Jacobs in Ukraine (4) – Back from Kiev

‘We don’t hear gunshots in Kiev as we did in Mariupol. The war is far removed from here, yet awfully close at the same time. We meet the rabbi of Donetsk in his cultural centre in Kiev. He was born in Israel and moved to the East of Ukraine with his family twenty years ago to serve the Jewish community there. His community had three thousand families.

Rabbi Jacobs in Ukraine (3) – Confusion

‘Tomorrow will be the last day. First we have another two meetings in Kiev, then off to the airport, then we’ll land at home, and then Shabbat: Rest! Rest? I don’t know. Right now there are so many things going through my head. I’m confused. The joy and the sadness are both wandering around my mind.

Rabbi Jacobs in Ukraine (2) – Yeka Girls

'Though I know that today is only my fourth day in Ukraine it seems like I’ve been here for weeks. I am not in the Ukraine by the way, but in Ukraine, without ‘the’. Though I don’t quite understand the logic of this, the experts have brought this to my attention. So now you know as well, dear reader of my journal.
