Tel Aviv becoming Israel's new Aliyah capital
In 2016, Tel Aviv outpaced Jerusalem as the "destination city" of the greatest number of new immigrants. The majority of those making Aliyah and choosing Tel Aviv, did so because of the "start up" environment and the cosmopolitan lifestyle. With immigration from countries where Jews were suffering persecution declining in 2016, the more predominant number of immigrants came from Western Europe and North America.
27,000 people made Aliyah in 2016!
