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...

They Want To Go More Than Ever
Today, as we watch the news from Israel, we may be deeply troubled about what is happening. No one knows what these recent events will lead to. Yet, in the epicenter is a Sovereign God who is bringing His people home! Yesterday our staff spoke with a young man who is being assisted to Israel by Operation Exodus USA. He said, “I am more anxious than ever to get there.” As of now, all who have been planning to make aliyah are moving ahead with their plans. This week we have received multiple requests for assistance. These brave and committed ones are being drawn to Israel. Each person returning...

Bnei Menashe, Sons of Manasseh, Return from India
Through your financial giving, we are able to support the work of Shavei Israel, helping to bring back the Bnei Menashe from India. The Bnei Menashe are descendants from one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, which were sent into exile in Assyria more than 27 centuries ago. Their ancestors wandered through Central Asia and the Far East for centuries before settling in what is now north-eastern India, along the border with Burma and Bangladesh. Michael Freund, Chairman of Shavei Israel, rejoiced with 53 of this ancient tribe when they arrived in Israel on December 24, 2012. He writes: "It was a...

The Return of the Bnei Menashe
Ebenezer Operation Exodus is supporting the work of a Jewish organisation, Shavei Israel, in helping the Bnei Menashe tribe return to Israel after many centuries of exile in India. Deepa Thomas, our India National Coordinator, explains: The Bnei Menashe, a group of over 9,000 people living in India’s north-eastern border states of Manipur and Mizoram, claim descent from one of the ten lost tribes of Israel who were sent into exile by the Assyrian empire more than 27 centuries ago. Their ancestors wandered through Central Asia and the Far East for centuries before settling in India, along the...

Shalom from Jerusalem
The central aim and focus of our office in Jerusalem is to reach out to the olim (immigrants) who are in need. We assist those whom Ebenezer has directly helped to make aliyah, and others as well. As olim arrive from the USA and other western countries, they have to adjust to being in a whole new culture and lifestyle. It is not always easy, and the challenges can be overwhelming. But once we sit down with them and address the challenges, they are very thankful that there is a place they can connect with people who can give them hope in challenging situations. We listen with a compassionate...

Australia - Praying for Aliyah Highways
Australia has been a safe haven for Jewish people for over 200 years. The expanse of the world’s driest continent, covering 7,600 square kilometres, is sparsely populated with just 23 million inhabitants. Living mainly in the largest coastal cities is a vibrant 120,000-strong Jewish community, many of them descended from immigrants who arrived here in the last century as refugees and holocaust survivors. They have made a profound contribution to Australian society and culture across fields such as medicine, law, music, the arts, science, the military forces, government and business. In...

Japan - Building On a Rich Heritage
Although Christians only number around 0.5 per cent of Japan’s population, many have an understanding of Israel and aliyah. A key to this is a passionate prayer movement which began in the 1930s and spread from Japan to other eastern Asia countries. I saw this zeal to see the return of the Jewish people to Israel when I spoke at an Asia Messianic Forum in Tokyo in 2011 and it has increased since then. Japan has a history of compassion towards Jewish people. In 1938 General Kiichiro Higuchi rescued 20,000 Jews who were freezing to death in Manchuria (in modern north-eastern China) after...

Ministry In Israel: Jerusalem Office
‘I assure you, when you did it to one of the least of these My brothers and sisters, you were doing it to Me!’ (Matt 37:40) Operation Exodus opened its Jerusalem office in 2006 under the supervision of Shirley Lawrenson, Olim Liaison. This was a timely event, because during that year Israel fought a war in southern Lebanon with the Hezbollah terrorist organization and northern Israel was under missile bombardment. Shirley made several trips to the north to provide families with comfort and aid, even as missiles fell around them. The main purpose and focus of the Jerusalem office is to reach...

A Divine Appointment in Jerusalem
"...I will choose you “one from a town and two from a clan" and bring you to Zion." Jeremiah 3:14 Shalom from Jerusalem! At the Operation Exodus office in Jerusalem, we continue to reach out to the olim (new immigrants) who are in need, and we help them settle in the land of Israel. We are here to bring hope to those who find themselves in difficulties like finding the money for meals or paying the latest utility bill. We also give support, encouragement and advice to those needing information about the next step in completing their absorption process in Israel. We also meet them through...
