Voleh is an organization made up of both lawyers and non-lawyers who try to help and guide Portuguese and English speaking immigrants—both new and old timers.

There are two main groups seeking advice from the organization; new immigrants to Israel and future immigrants who have many questions about settling in Israel.

From their previous experience of working with a wide range of new immigrants, they have learned that the best way to help is by preventing problems. To achieve this aim, they use short articles explaining main issues in Israeli life ranging from bank account management to mixed marriages.

The range of issues raised by potential and actual new immigrants include questions on the pros and cons of various neighborhoods, employment opportunities, complaints about government ministries, car salesmen, real estate entanglements, contracts that were broken, employee rights, national insurance, car and house insurance, etc.

“We have found that with good solid advice, the immigrant absorption process can be smoother and better. With good advice one can AVOID complications, therefore saving time and pain.” Said Tzvi Szajnbrum, Attorney at Law Founder & Director, The Voleh Organization
