It’s official: Aliya Day to be a national holiday

There’s going to be a new holiday on the calendar: Aliya Day.

The Knesset passed in a final reading a law instituting the holiday on the seventh of the Hebrew month of Heshvan, coinciding with the reading of the Torah portion in which Abraham is told to leave his home to go to what is now Israel.

The bill was proposed by MKs Robert Ilatov (Yisrael Beytenu), Avraham Neguise (Likud), Miki Zohar (Likud), Hilik Bar (Zionist Union) and others.
