Jews leave France for Israel.
The emigration of French Jews to Israel surpassed the level of 2013 and in the first 9 months more Jews left France than from Russia and Ukraine.
Agence France Presse gives a figure of 4,566 people and is confident that the number will stabilize at about 5500 per year.
In 2013, emigration increased by 60% and its rate rose from the beginning of 2014.
The most important reasons are:
consequences of the economic crisis.
Over the summer alone, 2,000 Jews moved to Israel and, according to the Agence Juive, the immigrants are not afraid of the prospect of living a few kilometers from this strip, in Ashdod or Ashkelon, where many settlers settle down.
& laquo; Your aliyah is the best answer to enemy missiles & raquo ;, said Nathan Sharansky, the incoming president of the agency.
Earlier this year, the government of Natanyahu developed a plan for the integration of Jews who emigrated from France.
The plan includes the study of Hebrew and the equalization of diplomas obtained in France, with Israeli diplomas.
The agency is increasing its staff in France and states that information sessions were visited by 30,000 people.
The agency very willingly shares the numbers of visitors and is very reserved about those who leave Israel (by experience I will say that in Canada, especially in Montreal and Winnipeg (where there is a strong Jewish center) go non-weaker too.If not thousands in a year – I never detail was not interested in the topic – then hundreds of them exactly).
Arrangement of new arrivals does not always go smoothly, it is easy to find work due to the rapidly developing economy of the country, but it is not so easy to keep, besides, the newcomers are sometimes surprised to find that the social welfare of Israel does not always offer the same benefits that they used in France ..
