Nefesh B’Nefesh Expands to the UK

First Ever Chartered Flight of British Olim Expected in Summer 2006:

Nefesh B’Nefesh Expands to the UK
(4 APRIL 2006 / JERUSALEM) - Nefesh B’Nefesh (www.nefeshbnefesh.org), the organization committed to the revitalization of North American immigration to Israel, working in close cooperation with the Jewish Agency for Israel, will be launching its Aliyah (immigration to Israel) related services in the UK this month.

Since its inception in 2002, Nefesh B’Nefesh (NBN) has been dedicated to providing Aliyah assistance services to Jews from the U.S. and Canada. This strategic expansion of services to the UK move has come as result of an overwhelming number of requests by British Jews of NBN for assistance in moving to Israel. NBN’s headquarters will remain in Jerusalem while providing on - site informational support throughout the UK.

At present, NBN is coordinating a specially chartered flight of British Olim during the summer of 2006. Prior to the flight, NBN will send specially trained Aliyah professionals to the UK to provide informational seminars, slated to address employment, housing, governmental and numerous other Aliyah oriented issues. The events will assist anyone seeking comprehensive information on Aliyah planning stages.

“England is the most natural expansion for Nefesh B’Nefesh’s services, especially as result of the high interest that has been expressed from the wonderful Jewish community there, said NBN Co-Founder and Executive Director, Rabbi Yehoshua Fass. “The Israeli government, Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks and additional key British figures have given us their blessings and together we hope to achieve great success there as well.”

Nefesh B’Nefesh has built its success on removing and/or minimizing the financial, professional, logistical and social obstacles for (North American) immigrants to Israel. Their Olim are offered informational seminars, pre and post Aliyah social events, employment placement services, help assistance centers, Aliyah advocacy and a helping hand with general adjustment issues. In addition, the organization heavily assists in removing nearly all the 'red tape' bureaucracy before and after Aliyah. To date, 99% of NBN’s 7,000 newcomers have remained in Israel and over 94% of those seeking employment are gainfully employed. Over 250 “Sabras” (native born Israelis) were born and 63 weddings have been celebrated within the Nefesh “family,” including three couples who met on NBN chartered flights.
