Come make aliyah, Lori--and all the rest of the Diaspora Jews!

Intelligent, productive Jews like you are desperately needed in the State of Israel! The most meaningful contribution a Jew can make is living here with us, sending your kids to school, riding the busses, and working in Israel. I left the USA 25 years ago; it's not easy, but since when is being Jewish easy?!

Why staying abroad?

Israel waits for you - Home is where they let you in - Israel is our Home! This is the only and best place in the world - and it is ours! Being abroad means doing mitzwot just for not forgetting them. Living in Israel means completely accepting the Thora, demanding us to live here, constructing a Jewish country and preparing the arrival of Moshiah!
