Inspiring Story of Kibbutz Members Helping New Immigrants

In these difficult times, our hearts are warmed by the people of Israel uniting together to overcome 2020’s many challenges.

In Kibbutz Yagur in northern Israel, 15 new immigrants tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, 30 participants of the ulpan (Hebrew-language program) went into quarantine. A remarkable outpouring of love helped them get through the difficult days.

Support included donations and hot meals provided by the kibbutz members. In a show of solidarity, 3 new immigrants that did not have to quarantine distributed the packages to their peers.

Magen David Adom and the Clalit Health Services made it possible to conduct COVID-19 testing for all participants of the ulpan.

When the new immigrants completed their quarantine, they baked delicious treats for the families and children of the kibbutz.

We applaud the strong bonds being built daily between new immigrants and their fellow Israelis. Together, we are each creating a more welcoming homeland.
