Most aliyah experts agree
that American Jews don't
know enough about life in Is-
rael — only about 15 percent
have ever visited the Jewish
state — and what they do hear
is often negative: chaotic
economy, frequent wars, ter-
rorist attacks, etc.
Aron agrees with the theory
that the key to increased
aliyah is pushing a kind of in-
cremental approach. "I'm
applying the idea of aliyah in
steps," he says. You can't de-
cide to live in Israel until
you've spent time there." A
new emphasis is being placed
on having- U.S. college and
even high school students
spend an academic year in Is-
rael, having families spend a
summer there, having schools
in the U.S. offer programs on
life in Israel, and having local
Federations placing more em-
phasis on aliyah.
But Israel's economic woes
remain a tremendous factor in
discouraging aliyah, evi-
denced by the hundreds of

thousands of Israelis now liv-
ing in the U.S. Until that prob-
lem is addressed more force-
fully, American Jews will con-
tinue to ask why they should
go live in Israel if so many Is-
raelis are coming to live here.
Further, studies have
shown that about half of the
successful olim from the U.S.
are Orthodox Jews who are
motivated by the religious ob-
ligation to fulfill the mitzvah
of settling in Israel. And even
they are finding it extremely
difficult to make the transi-
tion.
"Contrary to what we were
told in advance, no one in Is-
rael welcomes you with open
arms," said one local man, an
Orthodox Jew, who lived in
Jerusalem for a year. The Is-
raelis resent that new olim get
tax breaks, and believe me,
they are not very helpful. The
bureaucracy is a mess and the
minor details of day-to-day life
— going to the bank, waiting
in line, paying bills — can
drag you down. It's the
spiritual aspect that makes it
worth it, not the people."
