The event, which draws hundreds of potential Olim annually, will cross the bridge from Manhattan to New Jersey in an effort to be more accessible and reach a greater number of people
In response to increasing interest in Aliyah from New Jersey, Nefesh B’Nefesh for the first time will bring its annual ‘Mega Event’ to The Garden State on March 10th. The event in Teaneck, co-hosted in partnership with Israel’s Ministry of Aliyah and Integration, The Jewish Agency for Israel, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael and the Jewish National Fund-USA, provides an all-encompassing slate of resources for retirees, young professionals, families and singles looking to make Aliyah, including “MedEx”–a dedicated track of seminars and personal meetings for medical professionals.
Whether prospective immigrants are retirees, young professionals, families, married, or single, the Mega Event provides guidance about a wide-range of topics, including financial planning and budgeting, choosing a community, how to build a strategic job search plan, navigating the Israeli health care system, the ins and outs of buying or renting a home in Israel, and much more. The event is open to those intending to make Aliyah in the near future as well as those in the initial planning stages. Those in attendance will also have the opportunity to speak with like-minded individuals thinking about making Israel their new home.
The parallel ‘MedEx’ conference will provide the opportunity to meet with top representatives from the Israeli Ministry of Health Licensing Division, the Israeli Medical Association and Israeli Health Funds. Representatives from leading hospitals in Israel will also be in attendance to meet with the prospective Olim. Professionals in various medical fields will be able to start the process of transferring their professional license to Israel on the spot.
The Mega Event is the first stop in a Nefesh B’Nefesh tour, March 10-13, which will also bring Aliyah seminars to South Florida (March 11) and Canada (March 11, 12) titled ‘Dollars and Sense’, which are practical Aliyah-planning sessions on budgeting, cost of living, and calculating earning potential in Israel. In addition, a large-scale Aliyah Fair will head west to hold events in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley on March 12 and 13, respectively.
