Nefesh B’Nefesh newcomers from the US and Canada

Hundreds of Olim will gather in Jerusalem next Tuesday, May 21, for the second annual Nefesh B’Nefesh Communities Fair, to learn about the most affordable and viable residential areas available to newcomers.

Representatives from more than 45 communities from the north, south, center and Jerusalem will be on hand to provide Olim with first-hand knowledge about what makes their particular neighborhood special. The Olim will also have an opportunity to hear from experts on a wide range of topics concerning purchasing a home, understanding mortgages, and choosing the right community for each family’s individual needs.


Some of the communities represented at the Fair are Ashkelon, Beer-Sheva, Beit Shemesh, Carmei Gat, Caesaria, Efrat, Hadera, Haifa, Hispin, Jerusalem, Karmiel, Katzrin, Lod, Maalot, Migdal Haemek, Modiin, Naharia, Negohot, Raanana, Rehovot, Shoham, Tzfat and Yokneam. Specific communities that have seen an uptick in interest from Olim recently are the likes of Rehovot, Pardes Hanna, and Harish, which is a brand-new, developing city in the north.
