Home Aliyah Stories

The first Aliyah story belonged to the father of all nations, Abraham. His exciting tale forms the key narration of the opening book of the Bible, when we hear about his journey from Ur to the land of Canaan, later to be known as Israel. Since those ancient days, millions of other descendants have followed in Abraham’s footsteps, each with their own unique account of their individual journey. Aliyah Stories provides our community with a glimpse into the personal lives of some of those brave souls that embarked on such a momentous undertaking.
