60 students of the Chabad yeshiva in Dnipro, Ukraine who made a daring escape from the war-torn country were greeted with singing and dancing as they arrived safely in France.

Greeting them at the airport, were Chief Rabbi of France, Rabbi Chaim Korsia, and Head Shliach to Paris Rabbi Mendel Azimov and a group of students from the Chabad Yeshiva in Cergy, France.

After the warm welcome, the bochurim made their way to Beis Chaya Mushka in Paris where they received a delicious hot meal and finally had a chance to rest after their grueling 4-day journey.

Late Monday night, students and families of staff members boarded a train late to Odessa. From there they traveled to the Moldovan border where they met up with local shluchim who arranged their entry into the country.

After Shabbos, the yeshiva will make its way to Düsseldorf, Germany where a beis medrash and dormitory have been prepared for them to continue their studies.

The yeshiva in Dnipro counts about 60 students who are sons of Shluchim across Europe. Most of the students are Ukrainian, although some are from Russia, other former-Soviet republics, and the US.
