Rav Brody, it seems as only the wealthy are welcome to make Aliyah. Can this be changed? My only survival technique to cope with life post-Aliyah as a single mother of 6 is a tonne of Emunah, and yes, day by day Hashem helps me and my children survive. I still need to grow a lot more emunah muscle, I still have a long way to go, but I am so relieved to be safe inside Israel. But I know a lot of people are even turned away by NBN and especially the Jewish Agency makes it very difficult for people to make Aliyah if their opinion is that their financial situation is not adequate. Do only the rich deserve to make Aliyah? So many of my friends and family feel stuck and unable to make Aliyah due to finances. They don't want to arrive here and become a burden on the state like I have been. What can be done to help poorer Jews make Aliyah before it becomes an emergency?


Rivkah, write Rabbi Fass! He won't let someone lower down in the hierarchy reject someone because of income. There are cheap places to live in Israel with great quality of life, such as Yerucham, Ofakim, and Maalot, only to name a few. Don't let finances scare you.

Only if you want to participate in their financial incentive packages, otherwise they don't examine your finances. I made aliyah with $250--that's it, plus the shekels they give you at the airport when you arrive. It doesn't take money to make aliyah, not even with NBN (I made aliyah with NBN in 2008), just emunah and deep love for Eretz HaKodesh. So tell your friends to start packing (and only pack the essentials).
