Moving without Packing: Guided Aliyah
Ilana Pickett was tired of packing. She had moved every year for the past 6 years. Yet when 24 year-old Pickett made Aliyah this May, she didn't pack a single box. Pickett had already been living in Israel since August 2011, and decided to take advantage of a convenient shortcut: Nefesh B'Nefesh's Guided Aliyah program.
Wish you could make Aliyah without packing up any of your stuff? Each year, close to 1,000 singles and families of all ages and backgrounds do just that, via Guided Aliyah; a free service that enables people currently living in Israel to acquire citizenship.
