1,200 Pack Nefesh B'Nefesh Aliyah Mega Event in NYC


NEW YORK, Seeking to help potential Olim to Israel make informed choices, Nefesh B’Nefesh (NBN) hosted an Aliyah mega event yesterday in New York City together with The Jewish Agency for Israel, Israel’s Ministry of Aliyah & Immigrant Absorption Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael and JNF-USA.

More than 1,200 people attended the Aliyah Mega Event at the Crowne Plaza Times Square to participate in Aliyah-related seminars and workshops and visit an Israeli vendor marketplace. Israeli professionals from a variety of Aliyah related fields, including shippers, accountants, financial planners, insurance, healthcare, real estate, universities and more, helped prospective Olim advance their Aliyah plans. Real estate developers and agents, Tzofim Garin Tzabar, and The Jewish Agency for Israel also attended the event.

Participants benefited from workshops and seminars on topics such as careers in Israel, financial planning, taxes & budgeting, Israeli healthcare and Aliyah rights and benefits. Representatives of The Jewish Agency for Israel also discussed the process for verifying Aliyah eligibility and the Agency’s programs that help immigrants transition to Israeli life. Nefesh B'Nefesh’s ‘Go North’ and ‘Go South’ programs were specially highlighted.

The New York mega event also featured Israeli Ministry of Health officials, who helped immigrants speed up the medical licensing process by submitting applications for those who plan to move to Israel soon. These officials also offered seminars on licensing procedures in medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, nutrition, pharmacology, and more – and provided personal information sessions.

“In addition to the hundreds of students, professionals and retirees attending today’s event, it is impressive seeing so many medical professionals coming from all over North America expressing interest in making Aliyah, said Nefesh B’Nefesh Co-Founder and Executive Director Rabbi Yehoshua Fass. “Our Aliyah Fairs are a beneficial way for those contemplating moving to Israel to hear firsthand from an array of professionals, through tailored employment, social and educational sessions on how to build a plan for creating a successful Aliyah."

To date, more than 50,000 North American and British Jews have attended Nefesh B'Nefesh pre-Aliyah informational seminars throughout the U.S., Canada and the U.K., including tailored programs, events and individual counseling sessions.
