UJIA's Contact Group

For some time, UJIA has been running a social absorption group that encourages young Olim Chadashim to meet and share their Aliyah experiences.

The “Contact” support group was created as a response to the needs of Olim Chadashim in the Tel Aviv area.

Groups of between 12 and 15 people meet once every two weeks to meet other recent Olim in the same age group. Each week vital issues are discussed dealing with the challenges of living a new life in Israel.

Seminars and workshops on “Culture Shock” and “How to survive and thrive in the current situation in Israel” have attracted large numbers of Olim in their first two years of Aliyah.
