About Go South

Since the days of David Ben Gurion, the Negev has captured the imagination of passionate Zionists. Covering 66 percent of Israel’s land mass, but only 8 percent of its population, the Negev represents a major opportunity for Olim. So much of the area’s burgeoning success has been due to the efforts of immigrants from across the globe, yet Olim from western countries have yet to capitalize on the opportunities of Israel’s south. Israel’s south presents a wealth of opportunities which make it an ideal option for English speaking Olim, including expanding communities, burgeoning industries and cutting edge education.

The Go South program is an ambitious initiative offering enhanced services and financial benefits* to Olim interested in moving to Israel’s Southern communities. These enhancements coupled with Go South based dedicated Nefesh B’Nefesh community and employment specialists will enable Olim to have a smoother and more solid integration thereby creating a successful and solid Southern Aliyah experience.

This project is made possible by the Keren Kayemet L’Yisrael, Jewish National Fund, The Jewish Agency for Israel, the Ministry for Immigrant Absorption.
