Sponsored: Twenty-five years of bringing the best of the Israeli property market to the world


Britain is entering a period of almost unprecedented peacetime upheaval, with the continuing confusion surrounding Brexit now claiming the job of Prime Minister Theresa May. With that in mind, could a potential move to Israel (albeit with its own political issues) be a smart move for some of Britain’s Jews?

Darren Rich, from Bayit B’Israel (Home in Israel), says: “We are noticing more interest in aliyah and generally clients wanting a foothold in Israel. With the uncertainty of a potential Corbyn-led government, together with a rise in antisemitism, this creates an unsafe environment and British Jews feel more secure in Israel.”

Bayit B’Israel specialises in organising fairs and exhibitions for housing, real estate, immigration and investments in Israel. It is eagerly anticipating another successful property show in London, taking place on June 2 at Kinloss Gardens.

For the past quarter of a century, Bayit b’Israel has served as a one-stop shop for those planning aliyah. It brings together representatives from property companies, estate agents, banks, lawyers and other professionals, to meet potential buyers at one event. By doing so, it makes the whole process much less daunting.

The success of the Bayit B’Israel model is evident - it has facilitated the purchase of thousands of properties through fairs around the world, including in America, Canada, Mexico, South Africa and the UK.

Rich says people are consulting his company for all manner of advice. “Clients are not turning to us just for purchasing a home. They are using our knowledge and experience to understand aspects of everyday life, for example schools and also the general cost of living.”

We wish all buyers starting their journey towards their Israeli dream home the best of luck - and welcome home.
