Cuts hit Jewish Agency aliyah staff

    There was confusion in Manchester this week about the future of dedicated Jewish Agency emissaries for aliyah.

    Next week, the northern Aliyah shaliach (emissary), Alon Aron, based in Manchester, finishes his three-year term. Mr Alon said as far as he was aware, he would be replaced.

    But Michael Jankelowitz, the Jewish Agency's spokesman, said there is currently a "worldwide streamlining exercise" to offer smaller communities the services of a shared roving aliyah emissary. He said major cities like London would continue to have their own permanent aliyah shaliach.

    Currently the Jewish Agency has two dedicated aliyah offices in the UK. The new system will mean an aliyah expert will travel to UK cities regularly, but dedicated emissaries will not be based in regional locations.
