100-Year-Old Man Immigrates to Israel

Only in Israel! Click here for the story.

Only in Israel is immigration associated with rising up, spiritually, ascending rather than descending … to Zion, Jerusalem, the Promised Land … ending exile, leaving the Diaspora … a new beginning in a country of countless contradictions.

Israel is the Jewish National Home; Zionism, the national liberation movement of the Jewish people. Accent on people. The Zionist movement succeeded against all odds. The people returned--a remnant never left. The state was reborn. It survived … and thrived.

It behooves every Jew who claims commitment to Israel to seriously consider aliyah … ascending … rising up.
