Aliyah goes “up” in 2013

(Thanks to Algemeiner) Aliyah (the Hebrew word for “ascending” and referring to immigration to Israel) increased in 2013. 19,200 “Olim” arrived in Israel in 2013, compared to 18,940 who arrived in 2012. Much of the increase was due to a 63% rise in immigration from France.
