Nefesh B'Nefesh Strikes Again

How many of you have said, " I would love to live in northern Israel, because it's so beautiful, but can't because I won't be able to find a job." For those of us who grew up abroad, in a house surrounded by trees and with a garden and lots of space to run around, northern Israel would provide the quality of life that we grew up with.

Thanks to Nefesh B'Nefesh and the Russell Berrie Foundation, your dream could turn into a reality. The Aliyah organization, which works in cooperation with various government offices, will bring over 1,000 newcomers to the North over the next few years. You can check out more info. on this project at

I always find it amazing that private organizations are able to accomplish so much more than the government can do. We have been hearing about government plans to build up the Negev, southern Israel for years and years and it's just talk. Nothing of significance has been done. Now you have an ambitious private organization, who is able to team with a foundation that has a similar philosophy regrading western Aliyah to Israel, and voila! You have have a program in place ready to start.

Way to go NBN!
