Go North Revisited

This is not really an ad for Nefesh B'Nefesh's Go North program. I was reading YNET and there was an article about what NBN is offering to Olim that join the Go North program.
"New Anglo olim settling in northern Israel will receive a NIS 100,000 ($25,000) grant and a car for a two-year period, as part of Nefesh B'Nefesh's new 'Go North' initiative, aimed at encouraging the immigration of English speaking Jews to Israel's northern communities.

"Some $10 million were allocated towards the project.

"Nefesh B'Nefesh sources believe most of the families would prefer jeeps or pickup trucks that are more suited for the northern terrain.

"And if that's not enough, each immigrant child will immediately upon landing in Israel be given intensive private Hebrew lessons – free of charge

OK, if that isn't enough financial incentive to make Aliya with the Nefesh B'Nefesh Go North program, especially with the US (and US Jewry's) economy in such trouble, then I don't know what is.

It's like winning the lottery.

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael טובה הארץ מאד מאד

Can I become a yored and then make Aliyah again? I want to move to the north, get 25K and a free car

What the hell?

Actually this offer (or parts of it) are open to veteran Olim (though I suspect they have some limit on how long you must have been in Israel or something).

No mention of bomb shelters?

When you say north - how far north is it?

A little north of Haifa, if you can believe it.

I live in the north and I'm not jealous (despite being here too long to qualify for sure). I'm so happy that Anglos will be attracted to the north, and will do whatever possible to help.

Come to live where very few Americans have gone before!

Wow- that is a major incentive.
Maya- when you say north of Haifa- where might that be?

There are plenty of Anglos already in Haifa...

Hamass plays war to kill Israelis.
Israel plays war & kills Hamass.
Arabs now whine to the media like little girls while Hamass hides.

Moral to Hamass: Don't play war if u want to live.
