Nachum interviewed former MK Rabbi Dov Lipman, Founder and CEO of Yad L’Olim, about Yad L’Olim’s important work and their upcoming concert starring Ishay Ribo with special guest Rav Shlomo Katz.
From the YadL’Olim website:
During his time as a Knesset member, Rabbi Dov Lipman opened the doors of his office to English-speaking Olim, working to assist them individually and to advance their rights as a community. Rabbi Lipman founded Yad L’Olim to continue serving as a voice in the Israeli government for Olim from all backgrounds. Rabbi Lipman and his government relations team are driving policy changes to provide immigrants with the tools that they need to succeed in Israel.
Aside from government relations, Yad L’Olim is available to help Olim from all nationalities navigate complex government bureaucracy in partnership with our affiliates. We travel to cities throughout Israel to meet with Olim and work to solve their individual and communal challenges. In March 2022, Yad L’Olim opened a special department to provide guidance to the tens of thousands of Olim expected to arrive in Israel from Ukraine. Our Ukrainian speaking staff members assist these new Olim with employment, finding a place to live, and serving as their advisors and guides throughout the process of getting settled into their new lives in Israel.
