Jewish Agency Bringing Ukrainian Jewish Community to Israel

Dozens of Jewish teenagers from Ukraine have been brought to summer camp in Israel as a relief from the raging conflict in Donetsk, through a special Jewish Agency for Israel project funded by the Jewish Federations of North America and UJA Federation of Greater Toronto.

At the same time, there has been a significant increase in the number of immigrants to Israel from southeastern Ukraine, the Jewish Agency reports - and inquiries to the immigration process have continued to pour in.
