Assisting Jews Making Aliyah
Ebenezer Emergency Fund International (EEFI) has a call and a mandate from God for a specific purpose: to assist and encourage Jewish people to make aliyah (immigrate to Israel) from all the nations and to proclaim God’s purposes for their return. By God’s grace, EEFI has effectively carried out that call for twenty-five years, helping more than 155,000 people, primarily in the former Soviet Union (fSU). Operation Exodus USA has contributed significantly to assist people who have made aliyah from around the globe. Over the past few years, we have begun to assist more and more Jewish people...

Engage: Israel- A Life Changing Experience
Engage: Israel- A Life Changing Experience By: Steven engage:Israel participant “By God’s grace I was enlightened with the truth of his Word as more insight about God’s eternal plans for Israel and the Gentile nations was planted, watered, and blossomed within. The teachings during the tour by Andy, Yuval and the rest of the Engage staff left a deep impression upon my heart, and I was richly blessed with a deeper understanding of God’s love for the nation of Israel and the Jewish people. I’m certain that I drew closer to the Lord, and my personal love for Israel and the Jewish people was...

U.S.A. Engage- Journey of a Lifetime
U.S.A. Engage- Journey of a Lifetime by: Kelsey engage:Israel 2012 participant & Operation Exodus USA staff “Engage Israel 2012 was a journey of a lifetime. Worshiping with people from over 20 different nations under one roof in English, Hebrew, Arabic and Spanish was a time I will never forget. Our amazing tour guide started us off by saying these words: “Shalom and welcome home!” He was right—home is the perfect word to describe the feeling of being in Israel. The Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum absolutely changed my life. I think it’s probably the closest experience you can get to...

Jacqueline’s Story - “Everything Will Be Over Soon”
As I attended a recent Holocaust Remembrance Day service at a local synagogue, I realized that it is the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors—more than any other generation—who want to know and understand the survivors’ stories, and many are making aliyah. In fact, most of those we assist are the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors—young singles and couples with small children. I watched as the second and third generation of survivors lit candles in memory of their parents/grandparents, whose painful stories were being read aloud. You could have heard a pin drop in that synagogue. We are...

Signs Of The Times
“Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?” Matthew 16:3 In His sermon on the day of Pentecost, Peter quotes the prophet Joel: “And it shall be in the last days that I will pour forth my Spirit… I will grant wonders in the sky above, and signs on the earth below... The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the great and the glorious day of the LORD shall come.” (Acts 2:17-21; see also Joel 2:28-32) Next year at Passover there will be a full lunar eclipse, a phenomenon also known as a “blood moon.” As the earth’s...

Israel:  The Mark of God's Faithfulness
“The time is coming,” says the Lord, “when people will no longer swear by Me as the living God who brought the people of Israel out of the land of Egypt. Instead, they will swear by Me as the living God who brought the people of Israel out of a northern land and out of all the other countries where I had scattered them. Then they will live in their own land.” It is an awesome miracle and an absolutely incredible mark of God’s faithfulness that the Jewish people are returning home to Israel from all over the world. Aliyah, as the return is called, is God’s plan, not man’s invention, as...

Why Do We Emphasize Prayer So Much?
When the Lord’s disciples asked Him to teach them to pray, the first petition He mentioned was, “ Hallowed be Thy Name.” We often think of these words as not taking His Name in vain, or honoring and exalting His Name more fervently. However, there is a specific moment in history referred to in Ezekiel 36-39, especially 36:23, where the Lord speaks of aliyah as hallowing or sanctifying His holy Name (NKJV). Aliyah demonstrates to Israel and the nations that He is God. The enemy knows his time is short when the Gospel spreads to every people group (Matthew 24:13) and the fig tree* reappears and...

Providing Aid and Comfort to the Olim (Immigrants) in the Land
“Let us rise up and build” When the Lord stirred up His Jewish people to return to Zion in modern times, there was a spirit of zeal and self-sacrifice despite seemingly insurmountable challenges. Some early Zionists sang, “We are coming to the Land to build and to be built by it.” Their spirit was reminiscent of Jewish fervor in the days of Ezra and Nehemiah: “Let us rise up and build.” (Nehemiah 2:18) Today, Jewish people returning home to Israel need such a spirit to face different, but no less daunting, challenges. In the Jerusalem office we bring comfort and give encouragement, advice and...
