Meet up with a bunch of English-speaking immigrants and they are happy to reminisce about their early days after aliya. Those who spent that first period in an absorption center often made friends that have lasted a lifetime, with occasional reunions and invitations to family celebrations.

For the families who were housed together at the Shikun Akadema’im in Haifa in the ’60s, these bonds are particularly strong, and they have followed the professional and personal progress of one another over more than 50 years.
