Building a stronger Israel, one person at a time

Since its founding in 2002, Nefesh B’Nefesh has revitalized western Aliyah (immigration to Israel) and brought over 40,000 Olim (new immigrants) from the USA, Canada and the UK.

By removing or minimizing the financial, professional, logistical and social obstacles that potential Olim face, Nefesh B’Nefesh has not only significantly increased the numbers of Olim, but also helped ensure their successful absorption in Israel.

While global Aliyah has been steadily declining over previous years, the amount of Olim arriving from North America and the UK, the countries where Nefesh B’Nefesh operates, is increasing.
