Bundle of Love - Immigrants

We are literally watching the Bible unfold before our eyes with the ongoing ingathering of the Exiles to Israel. Jews are returning from the 4 corners of the earth where they blessed the communities where they were living despite centuries of persecution.

Because of the cultural and ethnic differences that new immigrants bring with them when they immigrate, it is more challenging for many of them to adjust to the mix of Western and Middle Eastern life in Israel.

New immigrants often have a difficult time adjusting to life in Israel, finding meaningful employment, provide for their families and fully integrate into Israeli society.

With a gift of love of only $15 you could help Israel Today make them feel welcome, loved and at home in the Land of Israel!

Ethiopians to Contribute to Environmental Education in Israel

The Ethiopian lifestyle is based on sustainability. Included in the many challenges that Ethiopian immigrants face on arrival in Israel is the transition to a high-tech and consumerist society. Adapting will be easier in future: sustainability already plays an important role in the conservation-minded West, and is now gaining a more central role in environmental education in Israel.

The Jewish National Fund (JNF) recently launched a new project, Green Dream, that offers sustainable environmental education to Ethiopian immigrants at Absorption Centers in Northern Israel. The project is tailored to the unique needs of olim (immigrants) at the different stages of their absorption into Israeli society, through a partnership program between olim and Absorption Center staff.

An introductory day seminar for staff included lectures, workshops and discussions. The challenge now facing Ethiopian-Israeli immigrants will be integrating into the high-tech and consumerist society in Israel without losing the sustainability that they had in Ethiopia. Absorption authorities hope that embracing sustainability will help Ethiopian immigrants identify with, and feel more involved in Israeli society, as they contribute their indigenous knowledge to the program.

Israel Today is committed to the welfare of Ethiopian immigrants. For just $15 you can be a much-needed blessing to an Ethiopian-Israeli family today. Click here *AND all this summer, Israel Today will match your donation, multiplying the gift for those who need it most!
