Immigration and Absorption

KH-UIA supports aliyah from Western countries as well as areas of distress, and, when needed, rescue operations – ensuring that all Jews who wish to, can come home to Israel. KH-UIA supports the initial stages of absorption, including Hebrew Ulpan and programs to help new arrivals find housing and employment. New immigrants from countries of distress are given housing in absorption centres, where they enjoy several programs designed to ease their integration into Israeli society.

Absorption centres provide a secure, sheltered environment in which new immigrants can live – generally for a year – until they adapt to their new environment.
