Settling In The South

Settling In The South

Thank you for writing such an affirmative article about living in Beersheva (“For Liberal Olim, Southern Comfort,” April 22).

The Association of Americans and Canadians in Israel (AACI), is proud to assist olim like Josh and Ophira Streimer, Ravit and Gabe Greenfield, and Andy and Emily Shapiro Katz in their absorption process.

The AACI Southern Branch, with offices in Beersheva, has a large base of volunteers who assist our new olim in fitting into their new lives in Israel. Beersheva also boasts a Conservative synagogue and traditional Orthodox minyanim, where English speakers attend; a wide range of educational options; housing that is still less expensive than in the center of the country; and an ever-growing number of cultural activities.

We welcome inquiries via our website at

Miriam Green
Counselor, AACI Southern Branch
