Every year, we facilitate numerous Aliyah missions around the world for tens of thousands of people. Whether it’s the fulfillment of a lifelong dream or the need to leave unsafe conditions in their native country, with our assistance, any and all Jews can move to the Jewish homeland.
“Many Jews come to Israel because they see opportunities for a better life,” said Malka*, who made Aliyah from Latin America in 2019. “And while that’s true, even more importantly, I think that this is our place, our country.”
Of course, while so many olim (immigrants) move to Israel purely because they want to fulfill the Zionist vision of living in the Jewish state, many immigrate to Israel for both Zionist and safety reasons.
In 2019, with antisemitism rising to alarming numbers in many countries globally and hitting record highs in the U.S., more Jews than ever are fleeing oppressive governments or unsafe and antisemitic environments by making Aliyah to live in safety in Israel.
18% increase in major violent antisemitism worldwide and a 47% increase in life-endangering antisemitic threats from 2018 to 2019.
