To the Jews of the world...I say that Israel is waiting for you with open arms.”

- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

God has sovereignly brought together a series of extraordinary events to propel Operation Exodus USA forward with greater momentum:

  • The Jewish community has offered unprecedented support to our efforts in the USA.
  • Ebenezer Emergency Fund International has released the USA office to focus all our resources into encouraging Aliyah from the USA.
  • The number of people interested in making Aliyah has increased by thousands. Most of these are Russian-speaking Jewish people living in Brooklyn, NY.
  • Shirley Lawrenson, a key leader who has worked in Israel and the Ukraine, is now available to serve in our new Brooklyn, NY hub. She has coordinated the transportation by ship of over 40,000 Jewish people making Aliyah!
  • CharismaLife Ministries has dedicated a significant portion of their Ohio church facility for the support of the Jewish community, and for the establishment of an Operation Exodus USA office for the Great Lakes region.
"Therefore say to the Israelites, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone....For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land.’” Ezekiel 36:22,24 (NIV)

As the Lord has wondrously caused these events to fall into place, we are launching a major initiative to go where the need is greatest. This initiative, For His Name’s Sake Campaign, has two major objectives: to expand the presence, and the awareness of Operation Exodus USA.

BROOKLYN, NY OFFICE

Highly Strategic New York City Office in Brooklyn, NY

By some estimates, the New York City area is the temporary home of at least two million Jewish people, including 500,000 Russian-speaking Jews. Thousands desire to make Aliyah right now, but they are unable to do so without assistance. To serve them well, we have immediate, critical needs:

  • An office and living space for a full-time staff member and team of volunteers
  • An outreach program to the Jewish community
  • A full year of start-up operating expenses
  • Security needs and other support services offered to Olim (Jewish immigrants)
  • Helpful resources for interested Olim in the city, including specific information in Russian that explains the immigration process and what Operation Exodus USA can do for them

FINANCIAL GOAL: Although OEUSA is finalizing actual budgets, the preliminary projected cost for this is $325,000.

Joshua & Yehudit Joshua and Yehudit
I went to Israel to learn in 2007 and fell in love with the place and never looked back. I met my husband there in 2010 while he was getting his masters degree from Tel-aviv University. We got married and had our first child there. After he graduated we came to America for three years to teach. Now the three years are up and we have three children and we want to take them home. I already have Israeli citizenship but my husband will be making Aliyah for the first time.”

GREAT LAKES OFFICE

Permanent Presence in the Great Lakes Area

As we move forward with plans for the New York office, we are concurrently planning a permanent presence in the Great Lakes region. This location will be highly strategic for geographical and demographic reasons as we press our physical footprint westward. To serve the Jewish people well, our needs are critical:

  • An office for a team of volunteers
  • An outreach program to the Jewish community
  • A full year of start-up operating expenses
  • Security needs and other support services offered to Olim (Jewish immigrants)
  • Helpful resources for interested Olim in the city to explain the immigration process and what Operation Exodus USA can do for them

FINANCIAL GOAL: Through the generosity of CharismaLife Church, our Great Lakes office will save money in lease costs. However, as with our New York City presence, it will still require staffing, office supplies, and operating expenses. The preliminary projected cost for this is $50,000.

My name is Hagit and I am a proud parent to my daughter Kelly. Kelly has been volunteering for the past 4 years at the Israeli Scouts of Los Angeles. Through the years her determination to serve in the IDF grew stronger and stronger. A year ago Kelly decided to join the Israeli army through the Garin Tzabar program. Kelly is going to the seminars and training and is planning to make an Aliyah to Israel this coming summer. My husband and I are supportive of her decision. Sad to see her go, but know that she will shine and succeed in her new journey.”

ALIYAH SCHOLARSHIPS

Assist Additional Jewish Immigrants in Making Aliyah

FINANCIAL GOAL: The average scholarship amount given to those making Aliyah is $650.00. For His Name’s Sake is targeting more than one thousand additional Aliyah scholarships, over and above normal giving. The preliminary projected cost for this initiative is $750,000.

Thank you so much for helping us make Aliyah!

NATIONAL AWARENESS

Spreading the Heart of Aliyah Throughout the Church

National Awareness Campaign Icon

Global events are unfolding quickly, and with them the urgency to build awareness is growing every day. Not surprisingly, we have found that once believers understand the prophetic times we live in, they are excited to join us in this effort. This is a message we must get out to the Church! Scriptures such as Isaiah 49:22 show that God has invited the Church to play a critical role in assisting Jewish people in their return to Israel.

Together, For His Name’s Sake, we must communicate to the Church the Jewish people’s God-inspired motivations to make Aliyah.”

For His Name’s Sake, together we must build awareness of what Aliyah is: exactly what it takes for a Jewish person to immigrate to Israel, explaining the costs, courage and logistics involved in the move. Together, For His Name’s Sake, we must communicate to the Church the Jewish people’s God-inspired motivations to make Aliyah. To the Gentiles we need to communicate our biblical mandate, our compassionate motivations to serve those making Aliyah, and specifically the role Operation Exodus USA fills in the work of Aliyah. Together, For His Name’s Sake, we must also build awareness of the beautiful lives impacted by our organization.

One powerful way to get the word out is by telling the stories of Olim (people who make Aliyah) across the United States. To that end, we will collect and document the stories that have captivated our hearts, through their amazing Aliyah journey, and then share those stories with the world! Through contemporary messaging strategies, web, video, photos, social media, and grassroots efforts we want to speak with a clear voice to the Church, to elevate awareness and participation, and fulfill our mission... For His Name’s Sake!

FINANCIAL GOAL: The preliminary projected cost for this initiative is $400,000.

I am a Jew making Aliyah to Israel soon... I was a U.S. Marine who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan who is moving to Israel because it is where my heart and soul belongs; I am going there to heal from the war.”
