Nefesh B’Nefesh will be conducting a week of aliyah mega events and fairs in six major cities across North America together with The Jewish Agency for Israel, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael, JNF-USA, and Israel’s Ministry of Immigrant Absorption. The aliyah events, which will take place in Toronto, Montreal, Florida, Baltimore, Washington, and New York between March 3 and 10, will incorporate aliyah-related seminars and workshops, as well as personal consultations with staff from all of the organizers. Representatives from various Israeli ministries, health funds, shippers, The Jewish Agency and Nefesh B’Nefesh’s ‘Go North’ and ‘Go South’ programs will also be present.
Israeli Communications Minister Moshe Kahlon; Mayor of Karmiel Adi Eldar; and world co-chairman of KKL-JNF Effie Stenzler will be among the guests of honor at the NY event, as well as the Israeli Consul General in NY, Ido Aharoni.
Participants will benefit from workshops and seminars on various topics such as: careers in Israel, financial planning, taxes and budgeting, the Israeli healthcare system, navigating Israel’s education system, introduction to the aliyah process, aliyah rights and benefits, and the ‘Go North’ and ‘Go South’ programs. In addition, representatives of The Jewish Agency will speak about the process for verifying aliyah eligibility and the various programs the agency offers to assist immigrants in their transition to Israeli life.
