Israel Takes in Ukrainians
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:

Israel announced that they have already taken in 25,000 non-Jewish Ukrainians. They will be permitted to stay in Israel permanently.

Israel has also suspended the $3000 deposit usually requested of non-Jews to make certain that they leave the country.

Of the 25,000 Ukrainians non-Jews now in Israel, 20,000 are in Israel illegally in Israel. They will be permitted to legally remain.

Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked made the announcement Tuesday. Israel’s Law of Return usually offers citizenship only to people with at least one Jewish grandparent.

But this is not a usual circumstance and Israel needs to act to save lives. Shaked summed it up when she said: “The sights of war in Ukraine and the suffering experienced by its citizens rattle the soul and don’t allow us to remain indifferent”.

Ukrainians are not the only newcomers to Israel. Over 300 Russia Jews arrived in Israel and made Aliyah (came to live in Israel permanently) in 48 hours. And +Israel is expecting many more.
