Ukrainian olim: ‘It is a gift from God to live in Israel’

Arutz Sheva spoke with several new arrivals from Ukraine, to understand their perspective on their new home. All of the olim shared their joy as they looked forward to the freedom and security that await them.

Some also emphasized their thankfulness towards Israel for its support and guidance over the last few years.

"I am so confident in what the future holds. I have very much enjoyed the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews' assistance in Kyiv [Kiev], for the entire aliyah process. Here, we were very well welcomed by the Ministry of Absorption. I feel good. I feel that they care about me. And it's nice for me," said Alexander Senigor.

Miriam and Menahem Ivanikov explained that they had a comfortable life back in Ukraine, but they wanted better for their young daughter. "At first we wanted to make aliyah when she would be three or four so she could go to kindergarten, but the war was so dangerous that we decided to come now," they said.
