Growing anti-Semitism drives new wave of immigration to Israel
When I was in Israel in November at the General Assembly of the Jewish Federations of North America, I heard a startling statistic. There were 3,270 new Olim from France in 2013, a 63-percent increase from the year before. These new immigrants are helped in their Aliyah process by funds raised in our JCFR Annual Campaign and allocated to the Jewish Agency for Israel.
One thinks of France as a significant western European country with great wealth and prosperity. But the picture has changed in recent years. According to some of the new Olim, the economy is weak and some of the younger Jews are being passed over for the better jobs because of subtle anti-Semitism.Read More...
JFNA has opened a mailbox for Federations to support relief efforts by our overseas partners to provide urgent support for the 300,000 Jews living in Ukraine. Our global partners continue to assess the evolving situation on the ground. Ukraine is home to one of the largest Jewish populations, including some of the poorest Jews in the world.
Interfaith Journey II - Blog
Today was our first full day in Israel. We began our day of touring at the Yitzhak Rabin Center in Tel Avivwhich is dedicated to the memory of Yitzhak Rabin. The museum provides a comprehensive history of modern Israel, following the life and career of Rabin from his childhood to his assassination. The museum is dedicated to Mr. Rabin's pursuit of peace that was unfortunately cut short.
