About Voleh

Mission:  To ease the immigration and absorption process for new olim to Israel, Voleh provides helpful articles, guidance, and the assistance of volunteers who have themselves been through the process.

Voleh is an organization made up of both lawyers and non-lawyers who try to help and guide Portuguese and English speaking immigrants—both new and old timers.

There are two main groups seeking advice from the organization; new immigrants to Israel and future immigrants who have many questions about settling in Israel.

From our previous experience of working with a wide range of new immigrants, we have learned that the best way to help is by preventing problems. To achieve this aim, we use short articles explaining main issues in Israeli life ranging from bank account management to mixed marriages.

The range of issues raised by potential and actual new immigrants include questions on the pros and cons of various neighborhoods, employment opportunities, complaints about government ministries, car salesmen, real estate entanglements, contracts that were broken, employee rights, national insurance, car and house insurance, etc.

As a former officer in the Israeli army, I have the pleasure and opportunity to give much-needed information that can lead new immigrants in the right direction regarding any information they need regarding the IDF.

My advice is not always strictly legal advice. At times, it comes from my personal experience as a new immigrant many years ago. In addition to me, there are many other good people volunteering with us who can be completely relied upon for supplying up-to-date and accurate information.

If a case arises that requires the services of a lawyer within the range of our different specialties, I may advise or refer you to another law office. I am very careful about building lawyer-client relationships.

We have found that with good solid advice, the immigrant absorption process can be smoother and better. With good advice one can AVOID complications, therefore saving time and pain.

Although we are unable to answer every question “on the spot,” through the use of the wonderful new technology available to us today, we are now available by phone, e-mail, SMS, chat, web, etc.

I hope that we can be of help to you and make your life and Aliyah easier for you.

Feel free to contact us.
