The Department for LGBTQ Aliyah
The department for LGBTQ Aliyah (immigration to Israel) at the Association for LGBTQ Equality in Israel - The Aguda, strives to break barriers that may arise for LGBTQ immigrants, before and after settling in Israel.
The department was created in partnership with the World Zionist Organisation, and strives to support LGBTQ immigrants to Israel by providing information, tools, support services and consultation according to their needs! We also seek to assist you, LGBTQ immigrants on legal inquiries and matters, connections to the local LGBTQ community, and personal guidance. Our volunteer based team is happy to welcome and assist you.
The department for LGBTQ Aliyah was created in order to support LGBTQ immigrants by reaching out with information and services. It is by no means our mission to promote or persuade anyone to make Aliyah/immigrate to Israel. It is also not our intention to illustrate an LGBTQ “worry free” enviornment for immigrants. We acknowledge the fact that making Aliyah can sometimes be a difficult and challenging experience for LGBTQ immigrants. We also acknowledge the fact that many of the services available for LGBTQ community members in Israel are unfortunatly not yet fully attuned to providing services that are immigrant/non Hebrew friendly, but our department is working in that direction as well.
We seek to offer information/support with what is available today for LGBTQ Immigrants. We seek to lend a hand in settling in, and in integrating smoothly into our LGBTQ and Israeli community.
