aliyah from australia“Hey mate! What have you been doing this arvo?”

“It was a ripper of a day, I was at the Israel Aliyah Center preparing my Aliyah.  Got to get going mate.”

“I hear it costs 25 Shekels for a brew in a pub over there mate! You’re seriously gonna leave us in woop-woop, make Aliyah and go months without Vegemite and Tim Tams? No way!”

Well the good news for all of you down-under is you can get Tim Tams in all better supermarkets in Israel. You can order Vegemite online, and unlike Melbourne’s weather you won’t need shorts, an umbrella and a hoodie all in one day.

Ozzie and Kiwi olim have made a mark in Israel in many fields including diplomacy, medicine, business, education, property development, public relations, law, philosophy, sport etc.
