Aliyah focus of 2 events


If aliyah’s on your bucket list, Sunday, Feb. 26, and Monday, Feb. 27, should be circled on your calendar.

On Sunday, Nefesh B’Nefesh will host a free Israel Mega Event in Manhattan. Throughout the day, sessions will tackle the many questions facing Jews planning — or just thinking about — relocating to Eretz Yisroel.

The Mega Event will take place at John Jay College, 524 W. 59 St. For the complete itinerary, see page 3 of this week's Jewish Star print edition or click here.

On Monday, Kef International Director Adam Perlman will share “everything you need to know about shipping to Israel,” during a free talk at Congregation Aish Kodesh, 894 Woodmere Pl. in Woodmere, at 7:30 pm.

Perlman will explain the ins and outs of shipping to Israel and how to plan an aliyah shipment to save money, with on eye on insurance, expenses to be aware of, and optimal utilization of oleh benefits.
