The word “Aliyah” means “to go up” and is used to describe the process of Jewish people moving to and becoming citizens of Israel.
Although Jews always moved to Israel, the first major time of Aliyah was the end of the 19th century. At that time, most of the immigrants came from Russia because of the persecution of the Jews.
In 1948, there were approximately 156.000 Jews living in Israel. Today there are almost 9,000,000 of which 74.6% are Jewish.
God keeps His promises!
For thus says the Lord:
“Sing with gladness for Jacob,
And shout among the chief of the nations;
Proclaim, give praise, and say,
‘O Lord, save Your people,
The remnant of Israel!’
8 Behold, I will bring them from the north country,
And gather them from the ends of the earth,
Among them the blind and the lame,
The woman with child
And the one who labors with child, together;
A great throng shall return there.
9 They shall come with weeping,
And with supplications I will lead them.
PROCLAIM TO THE JEWS IN THE NATIONS, “GOD IS CALLING YOU HOME, EAGER TO FULFILL HIS PROMISES TO YOU.”
