Ukrainian Jews land in Israel, more humanitarian relief delivered to Dnipro

The Jewish Agency for Israel has received some 5,000 requests from Ukrainians to immigrate to Israel in recent days and believes that up to 10,000 immigrants could arrive in Israel in the near future, in what would only be the first wave of refugees headed to the Jewish state. So far, 700 Ukrainian Jews have arrived at aliyah (immigration to Israel) processing centers—run by The Jewish Agency and the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews—that are located in countries bordering Ukraine. The future olim (immigrants) are escorted from the border to temporary housing facilities, where they receive their visas to Israel.

The first three flights, carrying 200 immigrants and 100 orphans, arrived in Israel on Sunday, March 6. These new immigrants will be transferred to their permanent residences located in communities throughout Israel, including Haifa, CJP’s sister city.

In our sister community of Dnipro, Ukraine, the Jewish community unloaded more than 400,000 pounds of food (potatoes, cabbages, apples, carrots, onions, fish, eggs) to feed more than 10,000 people. Due to the shortage of certain goods, the community is now processing grain into flour and sunflower seeds into oil.

The Jewish Medical Clinic (JMC) in Dnipro has started to provide free medical care to internally displaced people, from urgent care to mental health care and even surgeries. The JMC also received hundreds of packages with medicine and prescription drugs for the community. Many children from combat areas arrived over the weekend with high fevers and were treated by JMC doctors upon arrival. A refugee from Kharkiv said:

In Dnipro, we are treated like kings thanks to the community, and have our first night of sleep without any bombings.”

The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) has helped shelter approximately 1,500 Jewish refugees and given other support to some 3,000-4,000 Jews, plus thousands more non-Jewish refugees. The assistance includes transit advice, food, and more. The JDC has also evacuated more than 3,000 Jews together with Chabad, local Jewish communities in Ukraine, the Jewish Agency, and the Jewish communities of Romania, Poland, Moldova, and Hungary.

Ukraine: Our Community Responds as War Rages on

“As the war in Ukraine rages on, we watch the humanitarian disaster with fear and disbelief: What seemed like a world order has so quickly shattered.

“We are human beings and citizens of the world, and our hearts break for all Ukrainians. As Jews, we feel responsible for the suffering and well-being of our global Jewish family, wherever they are. As Jewish Bostonians with deep relationships in our sister city of Dnipro, this conflict feels personal.”
