Nefesh B’Nefesh, together with Israel’s Ministry of Aliyah and Integration, The Jewish Agency for Israel, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael and the Jewish National Fund-USA, will host multiple Aliyah events across North America, from March 10 through 13, enabling prospective Olim to prepare for Aliyah. Stops on the Aliyah tour include New Jersey, South Florida, Toronto, Montreal, and Los Angeles.
The tour will commence on the East Coast with Nefesh B’Nefesh’s annual ‘Mega Event’, to be held 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.
The ‘MedEx’ conference will provide the opportunity to meet with 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 the prospective Olim. Professionals in various medical fields will be able to start the process of transferring their professional licenses to Israel on the spot.
On March 11 and 12, respectively, Aliyah seminars will be held in South Florida and Canada titled ‘Dollars and Sense,’ which will include sessions on budgeting, cost of living, and calculating earning potential in Israel. On March 12 and 13, a large-scale Aliyah Fair will be held in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley. The Aliyah events are open to those intending to make Aliyah in the near future as well as those who are in the initial planning stages.
