'The Key Solution to Israel's Problems - Aliyah'
Rabbi Yehoshua Fass, co-founder of Nefesh B’Nefesh and the organization’s Executive Director since 2002 received the 2011 Moskowitz Prize for Zionism. In the following video Rabbi Fass speaks about the murder of his relative in a terrorist bombing in March 2001, an incident which compelled him to embark on the mission of helping Jews realize the dream of coming home to the land of Israel.
Together with Tony Gelbart, Rabbi Fass founded Nefesh B'Nefesh, which revolutionized western Aliyah by removing the financial, professional and logistical obstacles that prevent many individuals from actualizing their dreams. The Moskowitz Prize committee explained that "the organization has revamped the Aliyah process, making the idea of moving to Israel a more realistic option for many."
