ICEJ Canada is involved with a vital absorption project, providing professional mentors to personally assist new Jewish Olim (immigrants) from many different countries acclimatize to their new home and community.
This is particularly important right now with the Covid 19 pandemic continuing because it complicates so many things for brand new arrivals. The ICEJ has partnered with the Jewish Agency for over 30 years and is dedicated to continuing to help.
Over the coming months, the ICEJ is taking on an urgent challenge – assisting with more than 2,000 Ethiopian Jews being brought home to Israel. On January 1st 248 Bnei Menashe arrived from India and need our help.
Since our founding in September 1980, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem has assisted more than 160,000 Jews to make Aliyah to Israel. That represents more than ten percent of the Jews who made the journey home to Israel in the past four decades. They are coming from the north, south, east and west – just as the Bible promises.
Once they arrive in Israel, many of them need tremendous support, which is why ICEJ Canada has sponsored this special “Mentoring Project”.
Each of the trained mentors we support will work closely with up to 20 families for two to five years depending on their needs after they have left the absorption centre. The acclimatization process takes a long time and there are different needs at different stages.
Mentors tailor their help to each individual family, sometimes with the language, finding homes, jobs, and schools for their children. They may need further help to learn the monetary system, basic budgeting and grocery shopping, to complete government forms even how to navigate the transit systems.
As to the amounts required to assist through mentoring there are differing amounts required depending on the need, when they came into the program, and why. Also depending on which country, they are arriving from. The range is usually between CAD $3,500- CAD $7,500 per family.
In Isaiah 49:22, the Lord says: “Behold, I will lift My hand in an oath to the nations, and set up My standard for the peoples; they shall bring your sons in their arms, and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders.” So, we are invited by God to play a key prophetic role in the great Ingathering of Israel in our day. Please join us by supporting these wonderful people!
