Operation Eagle’s Wings

For Jewish communities, coming home to the land of their forefathers is not only a deep longing in their hearts, but fulfilling scriptures that God desires to gather His people back into the land He had chosen for them.

The modern day ascent (Aliyah) of the Jewish Diaspora and return immigration to Israel is reminiscent of pilgrims ascending towards Jerusalem in ancient times as they gathered for their festivals, singing Songs of Ascent recorded in Psalms. The number of Jews from all over the world desiring to make Aliyah has gone up significantly since the pandemic started in 2020.

About Keren Hayesod & Operations Eagles’ Wings

Ezekiel 36:22 & 24 “Therefore say to the Israelites, ‘This is what the sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone. .. For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land.”

The Jewish People Are Coming HOME

As recorded in scripture, we believe the Lord will accomplish the work of Aliyah to uphold the holiness of His great name. At the same time, we are invited to actively participate in God’s plan.

Supporting  Aliyah is one of Keren Hayesod’s key initiatives and plays a role in helping us to realise the visions of the prophets of Israel. To date, Keren Hayesod has brought over 3.5 million Olim (Jewish immigrants) back home from the four corners of the earth so that for the first time in 2000 years, Israel is home to the largest number of Jews in the world. Israel is once again the spiritual, cultural and population centre of the people of Israel.

In the past 10 years, Keren Hayesod-Friends of Israel in Asia has also collectively assisted more than 3,500 Olim to make their journey back to Israel. Operation Eagle’s Wings is our latest initiative to support the preparation and transport for at least a plane of new immigrant Ethiopian Jews. Civil war in Ethiopia has also stepped up the great urgency for their Aliyah.

“ON EAGLES WINGS”
Inspired by Exodus 19:4-5

When God delivered His covenantal people of Israel, His primary aim was to bring them to Himself.

Exodus 19:4-5

‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself. Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine.

When God delivered His covenantal people of Israel, His primary aim was to bring them to Himself.  It is truly a beautiful picture even today for us under the new covenant of grace. That by one Man’s (Christ’s) obedience to the Father that we are delivered from sin and brought close to Him. Therefore, we shall always be a special treasure set apart for His glory and pleasure.

“BEHOLD THE KING”
Inspired by Hebrews 1:2-3

This artwork depicts our Heavenly Yeshua as the king and heir of the world. Unlike earthly rulers who wear golden crowns, upon His head rests the crown of thorns which symbolizes the suffering He took on our behalf.

Hebrews 1:2-3

‘…whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on High…’

This artwork depicts our Heavenly Yeshua as the king and heir of the world. Unlike earthly rulers who wear golden crowns, upon His head rests the crown of thorns which symbolizes the suffering He took on our behalf. In receiving the punishment and humiliation of the crucifixion even though He was perfect and without sin, He became the heir of the world and also fulfilled His mission of redeeming sinful humanity to become co-heirs with Him. Today Yeshua is seated at the right hand of the Father as the king of this universe.

The silence is gripping. It is for us to sense His time. And in good time, the unfolding of our destiny. Remembering always—that there is no greater sacrifice.
