Chaim V’Chessed reports that efforts of Jewish organizations to assist Americans stranded in Israel have seemingly borne fruit. In recent moments, the US state Department contacted US citizens abroad with a surprising message:
In the coming days, the Department of State will be assisting with transportation of US citizens seeking to exit Israel. These options will include air and sea travel. Citizens will be not be transported to the USA. Rather, they will be deposited at various locations, presumably in Europe. They will need to make their own way home from there.
Messages announcing this scheme were sent to those citizens who had registered with the State Department, as recommended by Chaim V’Chessed on Monday. Those receiving the emails are instructed to reply to the message if they are interested in participating.
Chaim V’Chessed has learned that details of this plan will be finalized in the coming hours and days.
