Greetings from Counselor Miriam Green
Welcome to the South! AACI is pleased to welcome you as you start your absorption into Israeli society. As a newcomer in Eretz Yisrael—or even an old-time vatik—you may find you need guidance through the Israeli bureaucracy you will encounter.
Here at AACI we provide up-to-date information on the tasks new olim
must undertake to register themselves and their families as established residents of Israel. From finding an ulpan, housing and even employment to acquiring a driver’s license, we are here for you.
Good grief, you’ll say as you wait in yet another line to discuss your status, bank account, health plan or education. Sometimes the frustration is overwhelming. Many Israelis won’t understand the Zionist dream that has brought you here. Nor will they understand why you’ve left what they consider the golden land of opportunity. But as you breathe the air (not too deeply!), feel the tranquility of Shabbat descend across the country, walk along the rocky landscape, you will be reassured that this is the decision of a lifetime.
As AACI’s Southern Branch Counselor, I will endeavor to answer all your questions. AACI has a network of resources at our disposal, and once you are a member, I will use them for you. My office hours in Beer Sheva are Sunday, Monday, and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Please call for an appointment. Our office phone is 08-643-3953. Or contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
On a personal note, my husband and I are 21-year residents of Beer Sheva, with three Israeli children. As our children progress in the school system, we continue to discover the challenges of being olim. We are happy here in Israel, and in Beer Sheva. And we invite you to share with us our dream of a viable future in the South.
