An account that appears to belong to Space IL tweeted to celebrate the craft's entrance into the moon's orbit. 

Space IL is partnered with the Israeli Space Agency and NASA for the project, according to NASA's website. Beresheet, which means Genesis in Hebrew, launched from Cape Canaveral, Fla., in February.
