Representative from Federation Global Partner Briefs Community on Life-Saving Aliyah Efforts
Our local community received an eye-opening update on the global work we ensure through Federation's partner agency The Jewish Agency for Israel.
Arielle Di Porto, Director of the Aliyah division of the Unit for Aliyah, Absorption and Special Operations for The Jewish Agency, spoke with Federation professionals and community leadership. DiPorto shared stories of the agency's evacuation efforts of Jews caught in crises or conflicts around the globe, as well as efforts to provide them with safe passage to Israel and resources to build productive lives in the Jewish state.
Di Porto has overall responsibility for Aliyah (immigration to Israel) from around the world, including the United States, as well as direct responsibility for Aliyah from France.
