Those interested in moving to Israel will get the chance to ask experts questions ranging from banking and education to job opportunities and real estate at the Major Aliyah Event at the end of the month.

The event, which is sponsored by the Jewish Agency for Israel, will take place in north London on Sunday 27 January and will feature legal experts, accountants, insurance advisers, bankers and head-hunters to answer questions.

Speakers will discuss topics such as Israeli health care, language and culture, and the logistics of moving, such as shipping, as organisers said both religious and secular families, couples and singles were catered for.

Managing the complexities of aliyah can be tricky, with British-born Olim (Jews who make aliyah) and returning citizens entitled to different rights, but organisers said those with first-hand experience would be on-hand to offer counsel.

A spokesman for the Major Aliyah Event said: “It is an opportunity to learn about what options are available, with everything you need to understand when planning for a successful aliyah, all under one roof.”

Help perform the greatest mitzvah: save a life

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.

That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.

We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.

Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
