In modern times, aliyah is used to designate the “going up” to Israel of immigrants from other lands, just as in former times it meant going up to the Holy Land.
Over 38,000 people made aliyah in recent years and numbers are growing! Since 2021 year’s Yom Ha’atzmaut, about half of the immigrants arrived from Ukraine and Russia, 4,000 came from the United States, 3,700 from France, 1,000 from Belarus, 1,000 from Argentina, 700 from Great Britain, 600 from South Africa, 500 from Brazil, 400 from Canada, and other olim made Aliyah from Australia, Germany, Belgium, Chile, and Italy, among other countries.
The Jewish Agency for Israel helps Jews take greater ownership over their stories in a very special way: they bring them home. All Jews, no matter where they were born, are Israeli citizens by right. LCI is proud to partner with the Jewish Agency to help God’s people make this journey.
