Aliyah and Integration
Aliyah is a Hebrew word that means to “go up”. Today the word has come to mean the return of the Jews to the Land of Israel. Aliyah, simply stated, is the ingathering of the exiles from the four corners of the earth. It is the immigration of Jews back to their ancestral homeland. Aliyah “is rooted in the Jewish people’s fervent hope to rebuild its national life in the country from which it was exiled nearly 2,000 years ago.
We’re partnering with the God of Israel who promised through the prophet Jeremiah, “For I will set my eyes on them for good, and I bring them back to this land; I will build them and not tear them down, and I will plant them and not uproot them.”(Jeremiah 24:6). We help immigrants after they arrive in the land with integration programs such as assisting with basic household items, providing vocational training, mentoring towards employment, and educational programs for children and youth.
