(February 14, 2019 / JNS) Nefesh B’Nefesh will host multiple aliyah events across North America next month enabling prospective new immigrants to Israel (olim) to be as prepared as possible.
The March events are co-hosted by Nefesh B’Nefesh, Israel’s Ministry of Aliyah and Integration, the Jewish Agency for Israel, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael and the Jewish National Fund-USA.
The tour will commence on the East Coast with Nefesh B’Nefesh’s annual “Mega Event” in New Jersey for the first time, which will provide a slate of resources for retirees, young professionals, families and singles looking to make aliyah, including “MedEx,” a dedicated track of seminars and personal meetings for medical professionals.
On March 11 and 12, aliyah seminars will be held in South Florida and Canada titled “Dollars and Sense,” which are practical planning sessions on budgeting, cost of living, housing and job-related expenses and calculating earning potential in Israel. In addition, on March 12 and 13, a large-scale Aliyah Fair will head west to hold events in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley.
The event is open to those intending to make aliyah in the near future, as well as those in the initial planning stages. Participants will have the opportunity to speak with like-minded individuals thinking about making Israel their new home.
The parallel “MedEx” conference will provide the opportunity to meet with top representatives from the Israeli Ministry of Health Licensing Division, the Israeli Medical Association and Israeli Health Funds. Representatives from leading hospitals in Israel will also be in attendance to meet with prospective olim. Professionals in various medical fields will be able to start the process of transferring their professional license to Israel on the spot.
