Anti-Semitism Spurs Increased Aliyah from France

A steady increase of Jews fleeing anti-Semitism and moving to Israel has prompted the Ministry of Absorption to submit for government approval a new plan to help them start new lives as “olim” [new immigrants].

In 2013, there were 3,301 new immigrants from France, the highest recorded number from that country since the year 2000.

Sofa Landver, on a visit to Paris Wednesday, told JTA that though she and her team expect mostly young immigrants, the ministry has prepared plans adapted to all ages and sectors, designed to ”erase all bureaucratic hurdles” which new arrivals are confronted with. In addition, the plan will consist of reinforcing in Paris and in other French cities the personnel who assist those interested in making aliyah.

Landver said that she will present the program in an upcoming Cabinet meeting.

”Immigrating to Israel is a decision each individual makes on his own,” emphasized the minister. ”But we consider it important to discuss our plans with the French Jewish leadership and to have their support.”

When asked whether she considered the rise in anti-Semitic incidents in France to be the prime motivation for immigration to Israel, the minister said that a community confronted with an increase in Jews leaving “reflects signs of discomfort, signs of insecurity and perhaps of anti-Semitism.”

She added, “Waves of Jews leaving their community are bound to have their reasons.”

The recurrent messages the minister and her team encountered in France were those of parents encouraging their children to build their future in Israel, rather than in their native land.

  1. How bad must it be that parents are encouraging their own children to leave. …. so sad. ..

  2. Veshavoo banim l’gvulam.

  3. the land of collaborators and cowards. just leave them to sink in their own sewer.

  4. Les Le Gear says:

    Also, land of Jew haters going back centuries. Why any Jew would want to live there is beyond me. Besides, the muslims will rule france in the not too distant future. And that will be true justice for the french.

  5. That is very intelligent for the Jews in France to leave.I know it is not easy for them but the wise thing to do.I would do so also!

  6. Being a Jew, especially a practicing one, is discriminatory against non-Jews, it is as if others are not so chosen, by the so called G-o-d. I cannot see how Jews, especially the practicing ones, shall survive their beliefs and pass it to their children. On the contrary, I see that not only Judaism, but Abrahamism, if not blind-faith religion in general, is dying. It would not be long before this generation is dead and their beliefs perished with them with them entering the realm of Death. But not before non-religious, secular people in the government can make an effort to institute a secular government based on mutuality and equality, a brotherhood of humankind. So, while I don't support discrimination of Jews, I also don't support discrimination of non-Jews, or non-Christians, or non-Muslims, or whatever.

    Written by a certified idiot!

  8. Maynard Miller Say what you will. I don't see why antisemitism is not the logical consequences of the doctrine of being an elite based on belief. So, it is just a bouncing back action, a reaction, against the smugness of Jews and the enmity they show towards non-Jews.
