Life as a new immigrant is not without its share of difficulties, attempting to learn a new language and attempting to integrate and become accustomed to a new culture. Yet, CBN Israel has a number of programs to help new immigrants with these challenges they face. One such program is the Alpha Course. The Alpha Course is a course where families come together to learn about the History of Israel, Israeli traditions and culture.
“Being a new immigrant is very difficult, but thanks to the “Alpha course” I can now learn about the history of Israel in-depth, as well as, participate in traditional Shabbat dinner,” said one participant.
Taking part in some of the traditions and customs help new immigrant families to feel they are a part of the nation and its traditions.
Our partners in the city of Ramla began organizing these meetings, providing food, materials, and resources for what these families need to know and study to help make this transition easier.
“Many of the new immigrant families are lonely and except for “Ulpan”, Hebrew language school, there are no additional programs to help the absorption process, meet new people, and form relationships.
A majority of the participants in this program come from secular backgrounds in they are not connected to any religious or believing community, yet, with the Alpha Course, we are able to reach their hearts and share with them the Good News.
Many of the families who have taken part in this course are now attending a local congregation and few have received Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Thanks to your generous donations and support, we are able to provide monthly financial assistance to our partners in Ramla who are working hard to help new immigrants through the “Alpha course.”
May the Lord bless you and your family.
