One hundred Jews from Kiev want to make Aliyah as a “gar’in” (a unified fledgling community), according to a report in Makor Rishon. They come from all over Kiev. All of them are young professionals, including doctors, lawyers, accountants and advertising executives.

Michael Rosenfeld, an emissary for “Hamidrasha Hatziyonut” (Zionist School) told Makor Rishon that he had been approached by a hundred Ukrainian Jews from Kiev who want to immigrate to Israel. There are 20 families on the list so far, as well as a number of singles. They want to make Aliyah together, and live together in Israel in the same community.

They already decided they want to move to a town in either Judea or Samaria.

Rosenfeld said that these are people who always spoke about Aliyah, but now the situation in Kiev is giving them that extra push.

Rosenfeld’s Midrasha is now opening an Ulpan course, to prepare the group with the language skills they’ll need when they arrive in Israel.

Rosenfeld is calling on the Israeli government, and Moetzet Yesha (The Council of Judea and Samaria) to assist them in the Aliyah process.

Simultaneously, others in the Kiev community are trying to raise money for security for the Jews of Ukraine, in response to the anarchy in the streets. According to a JTA report Thursday, the Jewish Federations of North America has launched a Ukraine Assistance Fund.

“As the situation escalates, needs in the Ukrainian Jewish community become even more acute,” said Michael Siegal, chair of the Jewish Federations’ board of trustees.

Rabbi Yaakov Dov Bleich, one of the two chief Rabbis of Ukraine, told John Kerry in a meeting this week that it costs $1000 a day to ensure the security of his Yeshiva, and that to provide protection for all the Jewish organizations would cost $4000 a day.

An estimated 70,000 Jews live in the Ukraine.

Now, imagine if they all moved to Judea and Samaria.

All it takes is a single “gar’in”.

    Wonderful choice of Judea-Samaria. Considering their ancestors lived and practiced their religion there for the past 3,000 years. They would be welcome by the Israeli Jewish community in Israel! But quickly labeled as outsiders by by the Palestinian arabs. Even though their ancestors originated from Judea-Samaria. And remember what they did to Jews during the Hebron massacre, never mentioned by today's news media!
    G-d Bless the Jewish State. They find room for all of those who seek only to live in Peace!

  6. It was 1880 when my greatGrandfather left Ukrania (Kiev) to Argentina. I wish it was a Jewish State of Israel then. I could be a 3dr generation Israelí.

  7. I just knew I would hear some good news today.

  8. God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob, your covenant is Everlasting!! Lead your people home and make a way where there seems to be no way

  9. Sara Brott says:

    Aloo v'hatzlichu.Go up to the Land and be successful

  10. Ritch Joy says:

    Go now, no time to pause!!!

  11. Kjeld Hesselmann says:

    Samaria and Judea are good choices. A lot of land needs to be cultivated by Jews.

  12. Immigration is one thing, turning tail, jumping ship is another. If you have no aligence to the country you live in then you should be driven out! The Ukraine needs every democratic thinking citizen to stand firm and vote for a democratic Ukraine! After Israel has accumulated all the cowards in the world, who will defend Israel?

  13. Ronny Mol says:

    Wait a minute. 1st Jewish press article said there is 200,000 Jews in Kiev and now this one says 70,000 Jews in Kiev. Which one is it? Another point is to keep the Jews safe there, it costs $5,000usd a day times 365 =$ 182,500usd to keep them safe in a country that historically ated Jews.
    Does that make sense? Better make sure they are Jewish by Halacha standards meaning, if your father is Jewish and your mother isn't your not half Jewish, your 100% NOT Jewish. None of this 1/4 Jew nonsense the secular Israeli government came up with. That is why we have so many pig stores throughout Israel.
