Aliyah – the decision to live in Israel – remains the highest expression of Zionism, and the ZCV is proud of the many Olim from Melbourne who’ve made their home in Israel.
As per the Israeli ‘Law of Return,’ Jews from all over the world have the right and opportunity to immigrate to Israel – a right that has been accessed by millions of Jews who might be fleeing from embattled countries, who wish to build a new life for themselves, who want to fulfill their ideological aspirations or those who seek to lead a fuller Jewish life.
Over 10,000 Australians, who have been assisted in their process by the Zionist Federation of Australia’s Aliyah Department and by the ZFA Israel Office, have made Israel their home, giving Australia one of the highest Aliyah rates (per capita) in the Western World. If you have ever considered living in Israel, please visit Aliyah Office website.
The Jewish Agency’s Aliyah contact details are (03) 9272 5523, the website may be accessed here.
