Aliyah (Hebrew for Jewish immigration to Israel) is on the increase despite terrorism, economic instability and Israel's uncertain political future. Jews from around the world continue to move to the land and today, more than one million olim (Hebrew for new immigrants) from the former Soviet Union constitute Israel's largest immigrant population. It is biblical prophecy being fulfilled ("In that day the Lord will bring back a remnant of his people for the second time, returning them to the land of Israel from Assyria, Lower Egypt, Upper Egypt, Ethiopia, Elam, Babylonia, Hamath, and all the distant coastlands. He will raise a flag among the nations for Israel to rally around. He will gather the scattered people of Judah from the ends of the earth." Isaiah 11)! And just this past Wednesday, nearly 400 more Jews arrived from the USA and Canada.
