Mazel Tov Israel!

Koen Carlier - 14 May 2020

Today, on the 14th of May, it is exactly 72 years ago that David Ben Gurion became the first Prime Minister of the modern State of Israel after the Jewish people lived in the diaspora for nearly 2000 years!

Before David Ben Gurion took on this important role he was the chairman of the Jewish Agency for Israel that at that time function as unofficial government of Israel! 72 years later the role of the Jewish Agency hasn’t changed: to help bring back the sons and daughters home to Israel, especially from conflict areas.

A few days ago Israel sent a plane to Kiev, after Ukraine gave ‘green light’, so during quarantine we brought 53 olim to Kiev airport! An amazing event to be involved in and to help in a practical way with our busses.

In the near future, Israel will send another plane to bring a group of 112 olim from Ukraine Home to Israel!

“So then, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when people will no longer say, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,’ but they will say, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the descendants of Israel up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.’ Then they will live in their own land.”

~ Jeremiah 23:7-8
