RECORD RETURN – Jews from around the world are flocking to Israel to make it their home fulfilling the prophecy in the process. 2015 represented a 12-year high in Aliyah or the immigration of Jews to Israel. Last year, Israel took in 30,000 immigrants, up 10% form the year before. Even the numbers going to Israel from the US are gaining momentum, with one assisting agency, Operation Exodus USA reporting an increase of 79% in those they’ve helped.
