Wikipedia describes “Making Aliyah” as “Aliyah is widely regarded as an important Jewish cultural concept and a fundamental concept of Zionism that is enshrined in Israel’s Law of Return, which accords any Jew (deemed as such by halakha and/or Israeli secular law) and eligible non-Jews (a child and a grandchild of a Jew, the spouse of a Jew, the spouse of a child of a Jew and the spouse of a grandchild of a Jew), the legal right to assisted immigration and settlement in Israel, as well as automatic Israeli citizenship. Someone who “makes aliyah” is called an oleh (m. singular) or olah (f. singular); the plural for both is olim.

Aliyah is included as a commandment by some opinions on the enumeration of the 613 commandments.”
Oh Plllleeeease! A fundamental concept of Zionism? Israel’s Law of Return? Halakha and/or Israeli secular law? Automatic Israeli citizenship? A return to the Promised land? Aliyah is included as a commandment? Where is any of this in the Torah and the Prophets? These are all additions to Yehovah’s word – which we, and they, are not allowed to do.

And, when the time comes, Yehovah will see that we get to the land which was promised to us. Continue reading Let’s Make Aliyah (Return to Israel) Today!
