A new wave of Aliyah from Ethiopia
Help Ethiopian Jews Make Aliyah
The ICEJ is now planning to assist with an expected wave of 2,000 Ethiopian Jews being brought to Israel in coming months. Ethiopian Jews are coming home and this special Ethiopian Aliyah airlift has been approved by the Israeli government, and the first Aliyah flights are scheduled to start in December. The costs for bringing them to Israel is currently higher than normal, but the Jewish Agency says it is an urgent situation and is looking to the ICEJ to fund as many of these Ethiopian Jewish immigrants as we can.
Since 2015, the Christian Embassy has funded Aliyah flights for over 2,200 Ethiopian Olim, including 268 this year—despite the coronavirus travel bans. And we remain committed to helping bring home as many as we can from among this latest wave of Ethiopian Jews.
Aliyah is often an urgent humanitarian mission, which is so obvious in the case of the Ethiopian Jewish remnant still living in rundown transit camps after all these years. They are facing persecution in a land that is going through a civil war.
Please pray about what you can do to help these very deserving people, many of whom have waited in transit camps for more than 20 years to rejoin their families in Israel. Be part of this fulfillment of prophecy and help finance more flights!
