Aliyah -- Coming Home to Israel

Thousands of years ago, the prophets foretold of God’s promise to His children that He would bring them home to Israel “from the four corners of the earth” (Isaiah 11:12). Today, we are witnesses to biblical prophecy being fulfilled as more than 3 million Jews have made aliyah, immigrating to their ancestoral homeland, Israel. In Israel, Yom HaAliyah, or Aliyah Day begins at sundown on October 24 and ends at sundown on October 25.  Find out more about this biblical and historical event through our educational resources.

Yael Tells Her Aliyah Story

Fellowship President and CEO Yael Eckstein tells her story on making Aliyah, immigrating to Israel, with her new husband. At first, though, she was opposed to leaving everything that was familiar, all that she had known growing up in America. But when God changed her mind, there was no going back and has made her home in the Holy Land.

Keep Moving Up

When a Jewish family moves to Israel, we refer to it in Hebrew as “making aliyah.” Aliyah means “ascent.” Moving to Israel is seen as ascending spiritually.
