Helping immigrants find jobs in Israel: Alternativa LaOleh


Published on

How can we help new immigrants in Israel?
At Alternativa LaOleh we make sure they find a job that best fits their experience, education and special needs.

For the last 8 years we've been lending a sympathetic ear together with the professional know-how of a placement agency, to make sure that the immigrants find their home here, in Israel.
Our uniqueness lies in free services, provided by a network of warm and caring volunteers and a tiny staff of five, all committed to the cause.
