The Jewish Agency opens hotlines for Israeli relatives of Ukrainian Jews and for those in Ukraine looking for assistance or to immigrate to Israel.

Throughout the rising tensions, the Jewish Agency has not seen a rush of Ukrainian Jews looking to move to the Jewish state.

The hotline is opened together with the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ). It will operate in Hebrew, Ukrainian, and Russian.

“The Jewish Agency and The Fellowship, in coordination with the relevant government ministries, are on the ground and prepared to address various needs following the escalation in Ukraine,” Yaakov Hagoel, acting chairman of the Executive of The Jewish Agency, says in a statement.

Emergency hotline numbers are as follows:

For Relatives in Israel
Toll Free 1800228055 extension 4
02 6367714
