NO OLEH ALONE!
KeepOlim's No Oleh Alone Programs made sure that every Oleh will be personally matched with a warm host family on the major chagim!
At Pesach and Rosh Hashanah we ensure every Oleh (who requests it) has a place to go and every host became a family!

Jose ShwadskyThanks Liami Lawrence thanks of you I didn't spend alone Rosh Hashana, and also I appreciated very much Galia and Joe Berry who's hosted me and were so friendly, nice and incredible dinner, also the Beth knesset and Yishuv Moreshet incredible. That was an unforgettable evening for me and an incredible way to start the new year!
Cesare Perugia Hi, due myself and my family arrived to our host that moed yet was, to respect the family, and another guest i haven't get pictures. Anyway our experience have been great. When i spoke with the family, some days before, i have been adviced that the house wasn't big, it was true, anyway, my family have found a family with a BIG BIG heart. Realy, this have been our first rosh ha shana without our families, but we haven't be alone. Thank you for all.. Cesare and family
Sara Manjari Porat Just got back from my "No oleh alone" dinner. I just want to say thanks again to Liami for organising this! And of course thanks to my hosts Yoni and Ditzah! I had a wonderful evening and met wonderful new friends. So greatfull ?
Ilana Eberson Thanks to this wonderful group for all the work you do to help people find families to join for the holidays. I really appreciate being set up with a lovely family for Rosh Hashana meals. Thank you and keep up the great work. .
Natalie Rivlin Amazing job. Well to all the matchers and matchees
Colleen Lurie Bamberger Way to go Liami, wishing you all at KEEP OLIM a Shana tova tikateivu vetichateumu. May Hashem bless you and us with health, parnassa, happiness and many lasting friendships. A good job well done.
Sharon Levi Frid Liami Lawrence you are not less than an angel thanks for all this effort it's amazing
Melissa Dubinsky As brand new olim chadoshim fortunate enough to have received direct invitations, we have watched with amazement Liami and his team start with a simple declaration that no olim would be alone this Rosh Hashanah, and turn it into complete reality. What a metaphor for the ability of my new country brothers and sisters to accomplish whatever we can dream to do. L'Shana tova to all.
Leah Rachelle Berman Unbelievable! Phenomenal! Fantastic! You guys are the best!!!!!!!!!!
Racheli Rubin Wow, yashar yochachem, such an amazing initiative, thank you for doing it!
Malka Levine Liami, I am so absolutely touched by what Keeping Olim has done with this campaign. Practically tears in my eyes now when after reading Daniella's post last night, you found a place for her and her daughter. Have you any idea what kind of merits you and all who helped have accumulated with this in Shomayim? If Moshiach comes on Rosh HaShanah (why not before?), I won't be surprised if it is this great mitzvah that tipped the scales in our favor. I wish you and all who helped with this, including those who opened their homes and hearts to receive guests, and those guests who took the difficult step of reaching out to you a kesiva v chasima tovah!
Daniella Moss Its the first time any one has ever done this for us. I am very touched.
Alejandra Salmon Suarez I wish this project was in the whole world! There is many Jewish people living in remote places who don't have a community to go. We are one of them celebrating only four of us with plenty of room in our table in a remote place in the UK! Shana Tova u Metuka! Rosh Hashanah Sameaj Le culam! Keep the go work, Congratulations To you Liami and all the people who work to make that amazing page possible! <3
Chaya Gold You are setting a serious example of walking the walk, not just talking. This is true love and an example of a good Jew.
Pnina Caplan You are remarkable. Thank you for all you have done for so many. May Hashem inscribe you for a sweet new year.
Eliran Sharabi You guys are amazing! We're so proud that some of the Technion students and their families were able to participate (both as hosts and guests). Shanah Tovah!
דניאל סנטר Thanks me and my service dog thank you
Leslie Strassberg Liami to you and your group a very healthy & happy New Year! G-d bless you for your hard work in getting Olims and hosts together!
Tzina Nechumah Yesher Koach to the Keep Olim team. :)
Natacha Correa I also had a amazing dinner last night! Thank you! Shana Tova u'metuka!
Sue Liberman I also had an AMAZIng dinner with the Kemp family in Nahariyah!!! THANKS SO MUCH TO KEEPOLIM!! AND LIAMI!!
Sharon Altshul- Moadim l'simcha Seder worked out great, thank you for all your efforts. And who would imagine that Josh and Maria had someone in common.. Love the small world here. It is a great initiative and your personal involvement.. simply amazing. Thank you for introducing us to Josh, Maria and Misha.
Denis Perchersky-Thanks a lot for suggesting Barry and Julie! It was like a real family, so nice and amazing!! Thank you !
Ber Lazarus Just got home from our seder with a wonderful family with whom we were matched by Liami. It was great. One of the best I've been to in years. So a big thank you to Liami and the folks at Keep Olim. A job well done. Chag sameach. !
Enid Arfer Shiansky The program is wonderful! After being in Israel for only 2 days we were welcomed to a very warm and friendly family for Pesach! The Seder was great! Thank you!
Jose Shwadsky- I went on Friday night and Saturday lunch time, Peri and Jason from Canada. Everything was OK and like always we owe everything to you as your big effort in this valued organization. Thanks very much hermano and jag sameaj
Anita Kelman-Thanks again for your efforts in finding a Seder for all to attend. I enjoyed my time at Eric’s house; it was indeed a short walk away from the apt I’m staying at this week. The group was quite eclectic and fun.
Sarah Goldberg- Thanks so much! We ended up having six koim guests (after planning to have 2) and it was wonderful like it always is!!!!!
Uriel Ben-Mordechai- We had a great time at our Host’s home, David and Minda Granowitz on Seder night.
Thank you for pairing us up with them. But it was a beautiful table, and a good seder. They were happy with us, and we with them. Keep up the KeepOlim work. You guys are doing an amazing thing, and are a great blessing to many. Despite the hassles of matching up pure strangers at a seder table, it gives family to those who have none.
Kenneth Ryesky- All had a great time! They plan to relocate to Petach Tikva in a few weeks, so they/we now have some new friends. Worthwhile!
Vilena Beylin- Hag sameah! Thanks for matching us. The Seder was great, very familiar atmosphere, and a very welcoming family.
Yury and Yulia Fedorov- Thank you for arranging a great seder night for us, we enjoyed it a lot. Thank you again, it was very good! !

Mikhail IndykThank you LiAmi for not making me feel alone and enabling me and my children to enjoy different hagim with both Sephardi and Ashkenazi families originally from Other countries and Israelis whom opened their homes and became new found friends!
Jean Sadoff - Hi. I just wanted to let you know that no oleh alone works both ways. I’m an oleh chadash (3 years) who wanted to host someone so we’re not alone. For various reasons my kids couldn’t come for too much of the holiday so we decided not to be alone and host someone!
Leah Boncher-Thank you so much for your help with connecting us to our family to have dinner and Rosh Hashanah.It was a very special evening and the host were very special. Thank you so much this worked out at the last minute and it was a wonderful evening
Maria Reznikov Tomer Cohen Thank you so much for hosting me for the dinner!It was a great pleasure to spend it with your sweet and very welcoming family :)
Avraham Morhaim Tomer Cohen I can't tell you how much I appreciated your and your family's kindness, great family atmosphere and hosters, it was a great night with an abundant and delicious meal. I was a delighted to see a loving and welcoming family interact and enjoying the company of others. It showed me how can be close in spite of everyday pressures. We are fortunate to have such wonderful, thoughtful friends of keep olim together LiAmi Lawrence Who strives and devotes every minute so that no Oleh feel alone, and this is proof of that. Great mitzvah, very happy to be here and be part of that.
Ethel Berengolc-Hello Liami. Muchas gracias por contactarme Sofia Lazarus. Ella y su padre fueron unos excelentes anfitriones y pasè un hermoso momento en mi primer cena de Rosh Hashana. Shana Tova
Naomi Litvin - It was a great and interesting Rosh Hashanah dinner at Sylvana's beautiful home in Jaffo. Thanks so much for the placement. I thanked Sylvana the next day. Wow, the food and wine were scrumptious and everyone was welcoming and supportive.
Meredith Harper- Shana tova! I really enjoyed dinner with Judy! She had a large group there. Dinner started at 19:30 and in order for me to be able to have enough time to go to synagogue first, she let me come at 18:30 and walk to a nearby shul with her adult son. It was really a great experience all around. Thank you so much for arranging everything!
Melissa Despina Fragiadaki- Thank you so much for all your hard work finding me a place for dinner, even though it was last minute and you don’t normally take care of the second night. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it. The Kut family is wonderful, and they have a way of making their guests feel like part of the family. It was a beautiful, lovely, meal.I hope you had a nice Rosh Hashanah. Thanks again for all you do.
Shlomo Perarnaud- Good morning LiAmi. I wanted to thank you for your organization. I have spent a wonderful Rosh HaShana with Robin and Batya.
Javier Vulijscher - I wish to thank Sarah Kemp and her lovely family for having me for Rosh Hashanah dinner. Shana Tova!
