Why the North?
Following are some of the many reasons why Olim choose to live in the North.
Northern Israel offers a balance of natural beauty, history and local Israeli flavor at every turn. Experiences to meet and engage with others present themselves continuously. They range from hiking, touring, learning about different cultures to wine making, holistic medicine, the arts and more.
The many affordable housing opportunities in the North allow you to enjoy a bigger, more comfortable home, greater outdoor space, and breathtaking views at a lower cost than in other parts of the country.
Whether you are looking for a city, small town or yishuv, whether you seek a community that is secular, religious or diverse, the North has a wealth of communities to choose from.
The North offers a diverse job market in a wide variety of fields, from hi-tech to tourism and everything in between.
Israel’s third largest city, Haifa overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and provides easy access to all other parts of the country. It offers a wide array of communities, job opportunities, and resources for new Olim.
The beautiful city of Karmiel lies on the road between Acre and Tzfeat. With a population of 50,000, it offers the amenities of a big city while still providing a small-town atmosphere and scenic surroundings.
Located on a stunning stretch of Mediterranean coast, Nahariyah is a favorite retirement location for many Olim. It offers easy transportation solutions to other parts of Israel, and boasts an array of outdoor attractions and activities.
One of Israel’s four holy cities, Tzefat (Safed) overlooks the stunning Galilee hilltops. A prime tourist destination, it offers many tourism-related job opportunities and features a diverse, welcoming community.
“Honestly, there is nothing I do not like about living in the North. It has everything you need and then some without the crowds or the cost.”
~David Scott, Haifa
“There is so much more to Israel than what people see in the center of the country.”
“Living here, the view is breathtaking and calming. The pace of life is perfect for me and I can afford to live here.”
“We love the people – a very nice, tolerant, mix of people from everywhere.”
~Nash Family, Zichron Yaakov
