Gentile Christians are indebted to the Jewish People.

The vast majority of Christians are Gentile (non-Jewish) believers in the God of Israel, and as such, we are indebted to the Jewish people (see Romans 15:27). They have given us everything we believe in: the Bible, the Church founders and even Jesus Himself. Nevertheless, throughout the history of the Church we have frequently rejected and persecuted Jewish people. We are deeply ashamed of this part of our history.

Today we have a unique opportunity to reverse the wrongs of the last 2,000 years and write a new chapter in the relationship between the Church and the Jewish people. Now is the time to bless them and assist them to return to Israel, the land God promised to give them as an everlasting and unconditional possession (see Genesis 17:8).

God invites Gentiles to assist Jewish people with their return to Israel.

In the Scriptures, God clearly invites Gentiles to participate with Him in this process. Isaiah 49:22 states, “See, I will beckon to the Gentiles, I will lift up My banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their shoulders.” (NKJV)

Their return makes God known among the nations.

Ezekiel 36 and 37 tell us the main reason why God is bringing His people back to the Land of Israel. He says He will do it so that both Israel and the nations will “know that I am the Lord.”

There is no greater privilege than to partner with the Lord in making His Name known among the nations. We invite you to join us in doing so!

Olim is the word used to describe Jewish immigrants to Israel. It is a plural of oleh (masculine singular) or olah (feminine singular).

"Making aliyah" is the process of Jewish immigration to Israel. The Hebrew word “aliyah” means to “go up.”

The term fSU refers to the former Soviet Union. This includes: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lithuania, Latvia, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
