The Hon. Stockwell Day, chair of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews’ board of directors in Canada, and his wife Valorie gathered with the immigrants as they boarded two flights from Kiev bound for Tel Aviv to begin their new lives in Israel, thanks to support from the Fellowship’s donors in Canada. The flights are the latest in the Fellowship’s ongoing campaign to help Jews in need living in Ukraine and other communities around the world facing economic challenges and antisemitism. Not counting these latest flights, the Fellowship’s global partners have brought 3,532 Jews on 29 flights from Ukraine to Israel.
