The Radisson Blu hotel in Sea Point was buzzing with Israeli accents during the Aliyah, Masa and Higher Education Expo which took place on 19 and 20 February.
An educational and most helpful time was had by all as representatives from various organisations in Israel opened up a world of possibilities to all the visitors. Representatives from banks, government departments such as Education, Health and Welfare and Employment, as well as property companies were available to answer questions and provide information to anybody interested in making Aliyah.
People who came to learn about Aliyah could start from the basics and get an understanding of the Aliyah process, what their first steps in Israel would be like, learn about what to expect in Israel and what rights they will have. They could speak to different municipalities and choose the best place to live, meet with property companies to start looking for their new home and talk with employment advisors to gain an understanding of what the job market is like.
High school students and their parents received a lot of information about opportunities to take a gap year in Israel or to study in Israel and details were given about various bursaries that are available.
Over two days, more than 250 people came to listen to talks and meet for one on one appointments with the different agencies represented at the Expo. We at the Israel Centre invite you to continue the conversation with us. Let us help you to make the correct decision for yourself.
