Nefesh B’Nefesh, the non-profit organization that promotes aliyah from North America and the United Kingdom, brought its Israeli immigration message to Baltimore this month, joining with the Jewish Agency for Israel, the Jewish National Fund and the Israeli Ministry of Immigrant Absorption to host an aliyah fair at the Doubletree Pikesville on Reisterstown Road.

The March 5 event featured breakout sessions on navigating Israel’s bureaucracy, presentations from real estate developers and agents and the chance to speak with JAFI representatives on how to immigrate to the Jewish state.

According to Nefesh B’Nefesh, the organization has assisted moer than 38,000 olim since its inception in 2002. More than 50,000 North American and British Jews have attended its pre-aliyah informational seminars, said the organization.

The Baltimore meeting came as part of a weeklong series of events in other cities, including Toronto, Montreal, Chicago and Los Angeles.
