In November 2021, the Government of Israel voted to bring 3,000 Ethiopian Jews to Israel. The 3,000 Ethiopian olim include parents, children and siblings of relatives already in Israel. 

To support this historic effort, Jewish Federations of North America is seeking to raise $5 million to prepare, transport, and help resettle these new olim. Locally, Philadelphia has committed to raising $200,000. This emergency campaign, called “Operation Zur Israel” is especially critical at this time due to an increasingly violent civil war in Ethiopia. It is with deep pride that we continue to support Ethiopians with absorption, settlement, and to make sure they not only acclimate but thrive.

In support of this important work, Marcy Gringlas and Joel Greenberg from Seed the Dream Foundation have offered a $60,000 matching grant to be matched dollar for dollar.
