Nefesh B’Nefesh and the Jewish Agency for Israel will hold weeklong job fairs for would-be olim at four locations in North America starting Sunday. The events in New York, Miami, Baltimore and Toronto will highlight the opportunities Israel has to offer to new immigrants.

“Finding a job in Israel is one of the key factors for a successful transition into life in Israel,” Nefesh B’Nefesh director of employment Rachel Berger said. “Providing potential olim with a better understanding of the Israeli job market helps build their aliya confidence and preparedness and is vital for ensuring their successful integration into Israeli life.”A number of industry-focused seminars will also be presented by Nefesh B’Nefesh staff and professionals from various fields, covering a wide range of professions, including hi-tech, marketing, education, medicine, law, accounting and the non-profit sector.

The New York fair will feature a special networking seminar geared toward the many singles and young professionals residing in the area.
