The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) on Thursday sent monetary aid to Jews trapped in politically unstable Kyrgyzstan, where the opposition overthrew the government on Wednesday following a series of violent protests.

Rabbi Yehiel Eckstein approved the special budget. Rabbi Aryeh Reichman, a representative of a Jewish organization headed by Lev Leviev, is currently in the country, trying to contact Jews.

There are about 2,000 Jews living in Kyrgyzstan, most of them in the capital, Bishkek.
