Make Their Dreams Become Reality!

The time has come for the Jewish people to make Aliyah (Hebrew: ascension) to Israel. Our mandate is to ensure every Jew is able to do so.

To bring Jews home is the greatest investment for the nation of Israel. New immigrants come to Israel not to settle for just anything. They come to Israel with great dreams, and the desire to build up their homeland—their promised land. They are willing to do whatever it takes to advance as individuals and participate in developing this country.

However, not every immigrant can afford this move or knows what to expect once they arrive in their new home country. This is especially true for Ethiopian Olim (immigrants) who face many unique challenges along the way. For this reason the ICEJ made a commitment to support them in their decision to return to Israel, and together with our Christian partners around the world we make their journey possible.

Moodi Sandberg, former minister in the Israeli Knesset and current president of Keren Hayesod which heads some of the biggest Aliyah projects in Israel, is a strong spokesman and advocate for the Ethiopian community.

“We want to give an opportunity to all the Jews, whose fathers and mothers dreamed of the land of Israel for centuries, to fulfill that dream,” shared Moodi with the ICEJ. “And when they arrive [in Israel], we want them to adapt here well.”

As Christians, we can fulfill the prophecy from Isaiah by carrying Jews back to the land of their fathers (Isaiah 49:22), and we will be blessed for it in return according to the spiritual law described in the Bible (Genesis 12:3). Moodi explained it’s already happening today: “Whatever is developed here is for the world.

“The advancements achieved by the immigrants here are not just for Israel, but become a gift to the world. Whenever we have good things in our hands, it will be shared later with the nations! We came to this land to do something new, and to be a blessing.”

Tadeso is an Ethiopian Jew who grew up in a small village in Gondar, Ethiopia. He came to Israel eight years ago and today works at Intel. With pride and joy he shared with us how he received special training in Israel in electronics, and today works in his profession. Nevertheless, many more like him are still in Ethiopia, waiting for their chance at a better life.

Don’t wait any longer! Join the ICEJ today and help pave the way for more Ethiopian Jews to return to Israel!
