Our work again finds itself in the midst of a war zone
Ebenezer was born in a war zone. When that founding group of intercessors met in January 1991, Saddam Hussein was launching Scud missiles at Jerusalem.
Now thirty-one years later our work again finds itself in the midst of a war zone, this time greatly magnified. It's a massive heartache to us that the nation from which we've helped multiple thousands of olim over three decades, with many more still to come, is now under siege.

Many Jewish people will be among the multitudes pressing their way towards Ukraine's border exits in search of safety. Poland, Moldova, Romania and Hungary are rapidly becoming temporary emergency havens. We are already engaging with acute care and transport needs, and expect a burst of emergency aliyah ahead of us.
When speaking with one of Ukraine's chief rabbi's, Pnina Tamano-Shata, the Israeli Immigration and Absorption Minister said...
Israel is your home and the ministry will assist any Jew who wishes to make Aliyah
This is a time to rise further in our calling; helping the Jewish people return to Israel and making this statement a reality.
