Expo Klita 2012: Accompanying the Absorption of New Immigrants
Arutz Sheva visited Expo Klita 2012, which accompanies the absorption of olim (new immigrants) into Israeli life. The expo took place this week at the National Convention Center (Binyanei HaUma) in Jerusalem.
Expo Klita featured representatives from over 80 companies and organizations which answered olim’s questions and offered exclusive discounts on many services. The expo also featured lectures, discussions and advice from experts.
“We understand that olim in Israel have made this tremendous change in their lives and need to be treated as a category,” said Gidon Katz of International Media Placement (IMP). “They haven’t been treated that way so far, and we, for the second time now, have invited vendors, big companies, small companies, to service the olim community here in Israel.”
He added, “Everyone uses banks, mortgages, buys apartments, uses cellphones, goes to schools, etc. etc. We bring all these services under one roof for one day and in their language. That’s the most important.”
