This project was born in 2014.
God drew our attention to the big waves of new immigrants (Olim) that come especially from the combat zone in Ukraine.
We started providing food baskets and supporting with some clothes and every little help that we could pull together. However, God is great. He always has a plan and we began to understand the magnitude of this program…
“Now, I will send for many fishermen, says the Lord, and they shall fish for them; and afterwards I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them from every mountain and from every hill and out of the holes of the rocks” Jeremiah 16:16
Today, ministry to new immigrants is not only practical help and advice, the “Return to Zion” ministry team has launched spiritual support projects for new Israelis. The Aleph Discussion Club, in the form of an open club with treats and fun contests, introduces repatriates to the basics of the faith, initial Hebrew courses also offer examples from Scripture and encourages reflection on spiritual values. Regular meetings on Jewish holidays help to find their biblical essence and connection with our lives.
Through this ministry, we have seen families that found God; they participate in Shabbat services and bring others with them.“And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven and said a blessing over them. Then he broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And they all ate and were satisfied. And what was left over was picked up, twelve baskets of broken pieces”. Luke 9:16,17
