The creation and development of the State of Israel is one of the greatest stories in the history of the world. Olim from Western countries make a unique contribution to this story with their passion and love for Israel and their desire to make the state even greater. Olim from Western countries make significant personal and professional sacrifices to fulfill the dream of Aliyah.
Yad L’Olim’s mission is to help olim thrive in Israel. This begins with helping olim navigate Israel’s complicated bureaucracies to ensure that Israel’s new immigrants gain access to all basic services, benefits, and rights to which they are entitled. Yad L’Olim creates a support system for olim, developing new networks of professional advisors and assisting with gaining Israeli business know-how.
Within government Yad L’Olim serves as a lobbying body to the Knesset to drive government policies that provide new immigrants with the tools that they need to succeed in Israel. Yad L’Olim raises the voice of olim and their families in the halls of government and empowers olim to have an impact on Israeli policy and the direction of the Jewish state.
