Viktoria Pokutnia, a 19-yearold girl from Ukraine, became the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews’ 10,000th immigrant to make aliya since the organization’s inception. With the help of donations from Christians around the world, IFCJ strives to bring Jews who are in harm’s way to Israel.

Pokutnia arrived with her mother and grandmother from the besieged town of Donetsk, and plan to make a new life in Migdal Ha’emek.

“At Ben-Gurion Airport today, we welcomed Viktoria, Larysa and Kateryna with open arms. We’re deeply grateful that our Christian supporters around the world are helping us rescue Jews who face serious challenges and fulfilling their dreams to build a new future in the Jewish state,” said its founder, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein.

In its 25 years of helping olim realize the aliya dream, they’ve brought 750,000 immigrants and raised $750 million from Christian donations.
