Moving to Israel as a Non-Jew- very important!
Click the player above to listen…enjoy, and relax…
For those who are seeking to start a new life in Israel who do not have Jewish roots, we hope this information is helpful.
You might be among many, who would like to immigrate to Israel but have no idea where to start, as you do not have Jewish roots. (In other words, your mother, grandmother, great grandmother is not Jewish) …
Before you consider any ‘formal’ relocation ( to be discussed a bit later) we at Momentum Israel would suggest that you spend some time visiting this amazing country … Tourist visas (for most countries*) are valid for up to 3 months and issued on arrival at Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport.
Israel is unique – nestled on the shores of the Mediterranean – a meeting place of east meets west, modern meets ancient, religious meets secular… it’s a kaleidoscope of cultures and religions!
Enjoy and experience all this small but magical country has to offer, interact with its people, visit its historical Jewish, pilgrim and archaeological sites, savor its foods, speak its language…
In this land of Milk and Honey, although English is widely spoken Hebrew is definitely the language of the people … Knowing Hebrew is essential in order to thrive in Israel 🙂
One solution to learning Hebrew quickly and efficiently is to is to study at a credited Ulpan Institution a Hebrew studies program in Israel, which will allow you to obtain a Student Visa and remain in Israel for a year (or more).
Regarding employment, if you possess a valid work permit, and you are seeking employment – we can assist with your search. Please feel free to make contact with us…
If you do not possess this work permit, you’ll need to apply via the interior ministry webpage (*Note, the page is only in Hebrew) It’s highly advised to learn Hebrew in Israel prior to applying for work in Israel , otherwise chances are highly slim to be granted a work permit!
[For general information about opportunities between your country and ours, you may want to start by visiting the Israel Chamber of Commerce and select your country].
For serious inquiries about coming on a live or study program, feel free to visit our new Land of Zion Project page and fill out our simple form and we can gladly assist.

Thank you for this informations because it’s difficult to find some details about the way to immigrate to Tel-Aviv!
I’m french and not jewish and I’d really liked Tel-Aviv when I came for professional reasons (art project with an franco-israelian artist at the dead sea).
I’m in alternatives medecines and I would like to create my own business in Tel-aviv but it’s really difficult to know how is it possible to live and work there, the visas..etc
Do you think you can help me ? who could give me this informations ?
Thank you in advance for you answer
thanks for your comments
to answer your question, I believe your best two options are:
1. To find an employer who can sponsor you from France and apply for working visa (review my blog about visas..there is a link there)
2. You can come to Israel as a visitor for 3 months, learn Hebrew/find an employer, and apply for the working visa.
I can help , however I need to know a few things:
when you are planning to come to Israel?
Do you still have friends/connections in Israel?
What kind of job are you looking for?( you mentioned alternative medicine) but its a broad field..can you be more specific?
Thank you for your answer
I was thinking about going there 3 months by a visitor and find a job directly but I don’t know if 3 months will be enough to learn hebrew and also if it’s easy to find a job like this…
Unfortunately, for the moment I have no more connections in Tel Aviv because we argue with my ex boyfriend and he left in Israel without news.
About the job, I have different options who interest me :
– First, maybe I was thinking about having a formation for alternative medecine (ayurveda massage)
– Or create my own project as a manager of a center in specific alternative medecines, but I don’t know how the government choose the projects and if this field of alternative medecines is demanded.
– Or find a job in a cultural institution because I worked in Paris as a project manager’s assistant in a gallery of design.
To conlude, I have 2 fields who interest me : Art and Culture and alternative medecines
Thank you again for your time and your answers, I really appreciate
I think it would be wise to come to Israel for 3 months, go to Ulpan to study some hebrew, and find a sponsor here. We can also in the meantime connect with people via email who work in the fields you’ve described above in Israel which would mean you need to be in good relations with them. I’m confident if you network well, you can meet the right people by who can sponsor you to work with them. It wont be simple, but its possible.
I think you’re right, it’s the best way to find a job. Directly go there as a tourist and then…see!
It’s really nice to take time to answer my questions, I can see that it’s not impossible to go there 🙂
I have last question : what is the best way to find an apartment ?
Thank you again Rani
you are most welcome Valentine,
it’s a wise choice you’ve made and I am quite sure you can succeed to find the right employer 😉 I will be glad to help and give advice anytime you need it
In regards to apartments, I believe the best way to finding an apartment in Israel is to contact Ethan.
His email is firstname.lastname@example.org

Dear Sir, your article found it to be very helpful, as I have been for the last four years been doing a lot of personal researching into the land of Israel. why as to to being a no Nation to be born in won day has gripped my heart and how Jewish people have got themselves up to start a new start in Israel their ancestry land. however, I am interested in coming to Israel soon and work or volunteer, as love the country and the people as well. however, few problems. if I w\ant to migrate to Israel, I am not a profession or have any papers to prove whether I am a Jew. I live in Britain but originally from Romania. so I hate Britain cause there is no jobs the economy is terrible. please can you help me please. however, I am willing to do the Ulpan course as see it as important to learn Hebrew and loved it when traveled Israel for 6 weeks last year, felt very much connected to home. Shalom
I highly apologize for the late response.

I would like to migrate to Israel. I’m from Finland and I’m not jewish. I’ve been to Israel and love your country. I have almost 10 years of work experience in prison security and other detention centers. Is it possible to get security work in Israel if non citizen?
I am an American, and thinking of immigrating to Israel. I am not Jewish. I support Israel, I always will but I would like to do more to support Israel. The problem is my government leaders. I have been an aircraft mechanic for 13 + years, mostly commercial and military. I enjoy the few customs I do know but Living in Miami, most Jewish people are weary of others.
I don’t know if I should talk to someone at the embassy or not. Would it help if I agreed to join the IDF?

It has been a dream of mine to live in Israel since I was a child. I came to Israel as a teenager and then I was able to come again this past summer with my husband and children. I am a teacher (teaching music/theatre/dance/voice/piano) and will be graduating with my doctorate this spring. My husband, a fervent supporter of Israel, is a police officer and would love to come and serve the land of Israel. With our job qualifications, Is there even a slight possibility of us being able to live in Israel? We would do whatever it would take if this dream could become a reality.Thank you so much for your time!
Thanks for posting your comment.

I am one of the many non Jews wanting to move to Israel. I am not residing in Israel at the moment. My biggest question is can a gentile get permanent residence in Israel, if not citizenship? If it is possible, where can I start?
If you could be so kind as to get back to me I will be forever grateful!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
Thanks for posting your questions! I think many on this blog ask the same thing and wish to receive the right answers.. 😉
Securing employment in Israel is the best way to secure a future in the Holy Land, though this may be complicated for those who have no Jewish roots or Israeli connections unless you are sponsored from within. A Volunteering program such as a Kibbutz or an internship may be an excellent way to get connected with the right people for work-related connections. Furthermore, once you’ve obtained a volunteering Visa through a programme such as ours, it is possible to have it extended for a long time, which can allow for establishing the right contacts/sponsor.
Feel free Ella, to contact Tanya at TanyaMomentumIsrael@gmail.com and she can help with volunteering programmes and perhaps be able to provide a sponsor for you in the future.

This is Shobab here. I would like for my daughter to do post graduate studies in Israel. We have a keen interest in Israel. We identify with Israel as our own and without even being g there we think of it as ours and take great pride in anything Jewish. I am constantly devouring any books I can lay my hands on concerning Israel. I was in Israel in December with my mom and daughter and we would love to be a part of this uniquely special country. Please let me know if my daughter can do college education in Israel. She has studied commerce and is 20 years old.
First I hope you had a wonderful Shabbat (weekend). It’s always wonderful to hear about worldwide support for the Jewish nation. I am personally humbled by your words. Shobab, it is possible for your daughter to study in an Israeli credited College/University. A good place to begin may be at the IDC (interdisciplinary School of Herziliya) http://portal.idc.ac.il/en/main/homepage/pages/homepage.aspx

Hello, what are options for families to relocate to Israel (non Jews)? I saw you suggested the Zion project, could you go into more detail of what that project looks like? We are Christians from the U.S. And have a heart for Israel and its people and culture.
Are families able to work/live on a kibbutz or is that mostly for single adults to just volunteer?
Thanks in advance!
Thanks for posting your comment. That is correct, you can work on a kibbutz either as a family or a single person.
However , the land of Zion project allows non-jews to come to Israel and intergrate with Israeli’s and receive the right connections and option for a long term stay.
For more details about this project Amber, please fill out the form from the Land of Zion webpage or directly contact program director Tanya at TanyamomentumIsrael@gmail.com

Hello, I’m a non-Jewish American who has recently gotten involved with an Israeli citizen. I wish to study Hebrew in Tel Aviv so I can grow fluent in the language and also be with my partner. I have no knowledge of how I can apply for a language school or how much it will be. I don’t have a lot of money and just worry that I won’t be able to be with my partner while she goes to school. Sorry to waste your time if my desire to live in Israel is just not possible.
1.) Is Ulpan only for Jewish immigrants?
2.) Are getting married to an Israeli citizen or converting to Judaism even options?
Thanks for your posting 😉
Bronson, to answer your two questions, It is not necessary to be Jewish in order to study/learn Hebrew in Israel. If you wish to prolong your stay in Israel, you can come on a Student Visa for a year and study, while living in Israel. For more info or if you wish to attend Ulpan (Hebrew Studies) in Israel, simply fill out the short form from the link provided https://momentumisrael.com/hebrew-programes/.
To answer your second question, yes marriage and conversion are options to become either an Israeli citizen or to work legally, however to study in Israel it is not necessary;-)
I hope this helps , yom tov (great day)
Hello please help me out iam an israeli citizen who got married abroad i have 1 son who is 5 years old we live in kurdistan we have been getting death threats what are my options to return to israel as soon as possbile with my husband and son they both hold iraqi passports

Immediately contact the Jewish Agency through their website – we can help with the accommodation aspects.
Shalum, I am wanting to relocate my family wife 2 daughters to Israel as soon as I can. We all are us citizens with no personal connections to Israel unfortunately. We have no way to prove we are from the land either unfortunately! We were looking to come on a visa for 3 months, in the attempt to find work. Do you think 3 months is enough to do so? Without knowing anyone? If I do find work will my family be able to stay with me? Or will they have to leave at the 3 month mark? My frame of work is in the maintenance technician field and I have a lot of experience, but like I stated we do not know anyone from Israel at all. I am a hard worker and believe in my abilities, just don’t know anyone who is of the land. Not sure if 3 months would be enough. Should I start job seeking in advance? Or wait until I arrive ? Me and my wife do no little Hebrew but not fluently. We are looking to come in the fall 2020 so by then we should be better speaking the language. We just want to come home to the promise land to live freely any and help spread Love/Happiness!! Any advice would help. Thank you
Thanks for your comment. I would come visit Israel (If you haven’t already) to experience life here and perhaps participate on a kibbutz program or learn Hebrew. It would be required to know basic Hebrew in order to live here. Therefore, if you wish, we offer both Hebrew studies or Kibbutz programs – then perhaps while you are here you can see if there are any companies who can sponsor you to work (this is more of a challenge, however) and depends on the governmental policies to become approved. Should you require assistance you can contact us at Momentum123g@gmail.com
Best and yom tov.
Shalom. I’m not a jew. I was married with an israeli (he is living also in Romania now from almost 15 years)From our marriage we have a son who is 9 years old now and he has Israeli passport. That means he is also a citizen. Our son is very sever autism affected and I take care of him alone. His father is not involved in his life, not in his therapy in anything and for me is very difficult to take care of him by myself. In Romania we dont have good services for special needs kids. I’m very scared that he will be a teenager soon and I want to move in israel for him, for his benefits and for a better life. I want to offer him a better services in autism and a better future. His grandfather and his aunt are living there but I dont think they will accept us to live with them. Their family dosent care at all about the child… it’s possible for my to take an extended Visa? My son being a citizen is in a high risk here. I have learned Hebrew (level ב) in romania in the university. I dont know how to manage this problem. Maybe I need an Israeli lawyer? I dont know how to start… thank you very much!
Thanks for your comment post.
The first step is to contact the Jewish agency https://www.jewishagency.org/contact-us/
(You may also locate an Israeli embassy in Romania) to apply for right of return or Aaliyah status. After you have spoken with the agency and they approve your documents for Aaliyah, I can help you in finding your accommodation and relocation needs in Israel. You can send us an email at Momentum123g@gmail.com.
Thanks for your message and I am wishing you and your son all the best as of now- stay safe and healthy.
