Organisations Aiding Aliyah for Jews in Australia

Moving back to Israel is a fulfillment of God’s promise mentioned several times in the book of Isaiah:

“Thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I will lift up mine hand to the Gentiles, and set up my standard to the people: and they shall bring thy sons in their arms, and thy daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders.” Isaiah 49:22

Israel is a nation founded from sweat, tears and hardships. For many years, Israel has been in turmoil with its neighbors. If you’re planning to return to the promised land, for sure you’ve been asked this question:

“Your life is already good here. Why would you move back?”

For many people it may sound absurd turning back from a life of comfort and leisure but for us Jews, Israel represents not only our homeland but also our faith.

How many countries can say that their homeland is founded by their faith?

Only a few.

Moving back to Israel is a both a calling and a fulfillment of a divine promise. It is not just a mere representation of our love for our country but rather our strong belief in our divine creator.

However, because of logistics and bureaucracies, Aliyah or moving back to Israel can be such a headache.

We know the trouble of moving people from one place to another within Australia and we know for a fact that there’s no better joy than helping people move back home.

We’ve put up together a list of organisations that can help you move back or Aliyah to Israel. We hope that these organisations can guide you and at the same time make your experience a lot easier.
