Nefesh B’Nefesh, the organization dedicated to revitalizing aliyah by minimizing the financial, professional, logistical and social obstacles associated with the process, will be providing prospective new olim (immigrants to Israel) with the opportunity to have all their practical questions answered at events throughout North America.
These will be held in cooperation with Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael, Israel’s Ministry of Aliyah and Integration, the Jewish Agency for Israel and Jewish National Fund-USA.
“For many, aliyah is a lifelong dream, and these events offer individuals of all ages and demographics an opportunity to explore the practicalities of making those dreams a reality,” said Rabbi Yehoshua Fass, co-founder and executive director of Nefesh B’Nefesh. “These winter events and meetings are designed to empower potential olim by giving them vital resources and networking opportunities to ensure that their immigration can be as smooth as possible.”
Informational events will be held in Montreal; Toronto; Great Neck, N.Y.; and Beachwood.
The organization will also be hosting a brand-new workshop for retirees and empty-nesters in Queens, N.Y., on Nov. 17, as well as expanded “Aliyah Dollars and Sense” financial workshops in Boston, Atlanta, Chicago, Florida and Teaneck, N.J.
Additional events to be offered are “Buying and Renting a Home in Israel” in Los Angeles, San Diego, Queens and Teaneck; an Israel Networking Event for Young Professionals in New York City on Nov. 21; and a Nefesh B’Nefesh Pavilion at the Orthodox Union Jewish Community Fair on Nov. 24th in New York City, where there will representatives from six of the most popular communities new immigrants head to once in Israel.
