Aliya Day (01/11)

In June 2016, the Israeli Parliament - the Knesset passed a law establishing a new national holiday in the country. It is called Aliya Day.

Literally translated from Hebrew as "ascension", "exaltation" or "rise", the word "aliyah" has become a term for the repatriation of Jews to Israel. Until 1948, aliyah meant the return of Jews to the land of Israel, and after - to the state of Israel.

The date of the celebration of the Day of Aliya is determined on the 7th of Cheshvan according to the Jewish calendar. This date in the arrangement for the Gregorian calendar falls on the month of October-November and is not fixed in it. The choice of date was not decided immediately.
