The Jewish Agency for Israel:
Since 1929, The Jewish Agency for Israel has brought 3 millions Jews on Aliyah. In August 2008, Nefesh B’Nefesh and The Jewish Agency for Israel reached a historic agreement which produced an unprecedented collaborative venture for North American Aliyah. In essence, North American Aliyah is now processed through one application overseen by Nefesh B’Nefesh. The streamlined process provides a “one-stop shop” for making Aliyah and is considerably more time efficient and convenient for Olim.
Prime Minister’s Office:
Nefesh B’Nefesh first formalized its partnership with the Israeli government in November 2005, when Prime Minister Ariel Sharon authorized governmental funding for Nefesh B’Nefesh on a trial basis. In September 2008, the Israeli government officially recognized Nefesh B’Nefesh in a decision designed to enhance Aliyah from Western countries. A unanimous cabinet decision gave the authority to the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption to permanently fund one third of Nefesh B’Nefesh’s annual Aliyah-servicing budget. In February 2010 an additional cabinet decision was made increasing the government allocation to NBN.

Ministry of Development of the Negev and the Galilee:
In 2013, JNF USA forged a partnership with Nefesh B’Nefesh to build and develop the land of Israel in general and the frontier communities in particular, through an infusion of skilled, talented and idealistic North American Olim. Since its founding in 1901, the JNF has evolved into a global environmental leader by planting 240 million trees, building over 200 reservoirs and dams, developing over 250,000 acres of land, creating more than 1,000 parks, providing the infrastructure for over 1,000 communities, bringing life to the Negev Desert and Northern Israel and educating students around the world about Israel and the environment.
