Building Community – A Guide for Singles

Building Your Community

Building your community and developing a new social network is an inherent part of the Aliyah process. You can stay connected to other Olim by joining the Nefesh B’Nefesh group on Facebook. The group is open to NBN applicants and Olim, allowing you to network and connect while sharing your experiences and getting valuable updates on NBN news and events.

In addition, for more details about Nefesh B’Nefesh, our events and activities, Like our growing Facebook Page.

Apartment Hunting

If you’re looking for an apartment, http://www.janglo.net/ is a free Website for Olim with a housing section which assists those who are looking for both a roommate and/or an apartment.
