“In The New Year We’ll Make Aliyah”
The Jewish community worldwide is planning Aliyah as they welcome in the New Year in the international calendar. However, this modern day exodus is not only limited to the human race? Hundreds of Jews looking forward to a new life in Israel have also recently inquired regarding Aliyah with pets, according to the Israeli Pet Travel Agency Terminal4Pets.
While the general population was out there shopping for Christmas presents, the Jewish community was celebrating Hanukkah. Apparently, they were also thinking about their real home in Israel.
Hundreds of Jewish families had used the holidays (with time of from work advantage) in order to make enquires and concrete plans to make Aliyah in 2014.
Dr. Eytan Kreiner, CEO at the Israeli Pet Travel Agency, is overwhelmed by the demand for pet Aliyah services for 2014. “2014 had yet to begin and we are already engaged in helping so many families make Aliyah along with their pets. We have never seen such enormous interest in pet aliyah services in previous years.”
We were interested to know what explanations could be found. “The way I see it, there can only be two explanations…one is that there will be an increase in the overall Aliyah trend in 2014. The second is that people are more serious about taking their pets with them on their new journey. Both options are blessed!”
So, what’s ahead for those of you planning Aliyah with their best friends?
Israel is a pet friendly country. However, the efforts to prevent rabies epidemic in Israel makes it a challenge to import pets into Israel. There are specific rules and regulations for pet importation that require a professional approach. Dr. Kreiner explained more. “In order to import a pet safely and legally into Israel, there are several procedures that one needs to follow thoroughly. It might seem complicated at first, but we are here to help each and every one of you”, says Dr. Kreiner, as he refers to the unique benefits that await Olim.
