The Ministry of Aliyah & Integration in Israel –  Misrad HaAliyah VeHaKlitah

Hebrew: משרד העלייה והקליטה


General Services

The Ministry of Aliyah and Integration is responsible for assisting new immigrants and returning residents as outlined by the State of Israel.  They are responsible for encouraging aliyah and the absorption procedures prior to and after immigration (aliyah) to Israel.  In the immigrant population they also promote entrepreneurship, provide employment assistance, promote Hebrew learning, promote higher education and assisting at-risk immigrant youth.

The Ministry of Aliyah and Integration works in conjunction with the Ministry of Construction and Housing and the Ministry of Finance to provide assistance with housing for eligible immigrants.

Financial assistance to new immigrants is provided in the following ways:

1. Sal Klitah – The Absorption Basket

The Absorption Basket is financial assistance designed to help immigrants during the initial stages of aliyah with living expenses during ulpan study (6 months) as well as  rental assistance for their first twelve months in Israel

2. Income Insurance – Bituach Leumi

Immigrants who cannot work to support themselves are entitled to receive income insurance – Bituach Leumi.  Income insurance is also provided for those immigrants who cannot be considered ’employment seekers’ for special reasons.

Additional financial assistance is given to needy immigrants, refugee immigrants, complementary income to low-salary immigrants, loans for entrepreneurs, scholarships, grants to soldiers and other sectors of the community as outlined in current laws and regulations.
