Friends in Israel : Olim Helping Olim

Making aliyah exciting, exhilarating and at times, even exhausting.  Honestly, it can also be filled with many unknowns too – but it doesn’t have to be.  There are many sources available for people to get answers to their questions, like Facebook and Yahoo! groups, but Aliyah! Aliyah! presents a new idea; Friends in Israel.

Friends in Israel is, essentially, a pen-pal system where experienced olim help incoming olim with solid, feet-on-the-ground answers.

We believe it is important to have a Friend to help you out, to answer your questions, to chat with about Israel and to offer encouragement and support if and when needed.  Additionally, we will try to match you up with a Friend from your city so that your transition will be that much easier.
