Our Story

Aliyah Foundation is a non-profit organization of Jews and Christians who are dedicated to the physical and spiritual restoration of Israel. We aim to raise global support for Israel by promoting dialogue and understanding through Education, Advocacy, and Humanitarian Aid. If the Christian community connects to their shared roots in Judaism it will ignite empathy, understanding, and a desire for a relationship with Israel as a whole; Jews, Arabs, and Christians alike.
