The Jewish Agency for Israel has invited Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler to apply to immigrate to Israel.

The invitation comes following Aerosmith’s concert last night (Wednesday, May 17) in Tel Aviv, during which Tyler told an estimated 50,000 fans that he is “making Aliyah.”

With a humorous nod to numerous Aerosmith songs, Jewish Agency Chairman of the Executive Natan Sharansky urged Tyler to “Walk this way – to a Jewish Agency Shaliach.”

“While some believe the Israeli experience entails living on the edge,” he continued, “life in Israel puts one back in the saddle of Jewish history, and we know Mr. Tyler doesn’t want to miss a thing. Theodor Herzl said that if you will it, it is no dream. Mr. Tyler no longer has to dream on.

However, the Jewish Agency noted that it has no information to indicate whether Tyler would indeed be eligible for Aliyah.
