As Hamas attacks Israel, determined Jewish immigrants arrive in Israel from all over the world
The war of 2014 hit Israel hard. Over four thousand rockets fired from the Gaza Strip struck the homes and businesses of innocent Israeli civilians. These vicious rocket attacks affected the lives of tens of thousands of Israelis, and by the end of the summer’s hostilities, six Israeli civilians were killed and over 800 were injured by these terrorist organizations.
To this precarious situation, determined new immigrants arrived in Israel from all over the world. Assisted by the Jewish Agency, these brave Jewish families were provided with free food and shelter in the Agency’s absorption center in the southern city of Ashdod. Close to 3000 new Jewish immigrants live in the area being targeted by the nefarious terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip.
