No Oleh Alone For The Holidays
It’s hard enough being a new immigrant to Israel but for many Olim with no family in Israel the holidays can be a time of extra stress with the feeling of loneliness and no where to celebrate. That’s why we created “No Oleh Alone” for the holidays, where Olim are personally placed with warm embracing Israeli hosts families. Hundreds of Olim have participated in this program which has developed friendships for many of the participants. In fact for some Olim, this is their first time celebrating the Jewish holidays.
