Dear Parents of School Age Children,

Now is the time to inform the Municipal Aliyah Coordinator in your future community in Israel of your family’s educational needs.

Municipal Aliyah Coordinators offer invaluable guidance and assistance with navigating the local educational system including the Public (Mamlachti), Religious Public (Mamlachti Dati), and Chareidi schools from kindergarten through high school.

Many schools with an acceptance process are currently conducting virtual interviews for the upcoming school year. Don’t miss out!

In most circumstances, actual registration will only be completed upon your Aliyah, after receiving a rental contract, and having your Israeli address updated in your Teudat Zehut (Israeli ID).

For children with special needs or significant learning disabilities, please engage the Municipal Aliyah Coordinator as soon as possible.
