Aliyah Stories

Aliyah Stories

Stories about Aliyah inspire hope among those who desire to make the journey home to Israel. As you listen to some of these Aliyah stories, you’ll hear how they have embraced Israel as their home. Even amidst adversity, the Jewish people recognize this journey as divinely ordained – a God-given right to return home.


Aliyah Story

“I’ve planned to make Aliyah for nearly a decade, since a few days into my birthright Israel trip in 2004.  Nine years later, my convictions remain as strong as the moment I stood by the Kinneret one last time to say goodbye to the waters, torn up inside at the thought of abandoning the first place I’d truly recognized as my home.”  In this clip, she explains why she would pick up her whole life in the USA and move “home.”


Aliyah Story

 “Zionism is so extremely beautiful I lose words when trying to describe it.  It is taking a dream and making it a reality, but not out of hope or by prayer, but by active work.”  In this clip, he predicts what will challenge him most in his new life in Israel.”


Aliyah Story

 “As long as I can remember, I have always had an extremely strong desire to make Aliyah and live in Israel.  It was clear as a teenager that Israel was where I ultimately wanted to live.”  Hear her explain further while speaking with our Aliyah Director.”

Ahron’s Aliyah Story

“It has always been our dream to move to Israel.  To return to the land of our people.  I really believe that it is our obligation to return to Israel as G-d’s people despite the potential hardships it might entail.”

Pray for peace in Jerusalem.
    May all who love this city prosper.
O Jerusalem, may there be peace within your walls
    and prosperity in your palaces.
For the sake of my family and friends, I will say,
    “May you have peace.”
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God,
    I will seek what is best for you, O Jerusalem.
 Psalm 122:6-9
