After lighting Channukah candles at the Kotel with 300 people, Marom Olami and Marom Israel participants got together to sit in a pub with Rabbi Michael Melchior – an Orthodox rabbi, former Knesset Minister and head of the Meimad-Green Party that ran for the 2009 elections. Together we delved into our personal responsibility to forward change in Israel as native Israeli and as Olim. There was a very nice atmosphere, with drinks andSufganiot, as we discussed the events that have been taking place in the past few months in Jerusalem and the non-Charedi’s part in Judaism.
These joint events are a part of Marom Olami’s ideology of supporting the new Olim and introducing them to like-minded Israelis. We will be holding joint Marom Olami-Marom Israel events every few months. For information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
We would like to thank The Ministry of Aliyah and Absorption for making these Olim and Israeli integrated events possible.
