I agree full heartedly with Dr. Kedar’s recent article on Arutz Sheva, “No more the safe haven, no more the promised land.” Over the years I’ve written much the same about the Judeopathy in European and Islamic civilization; the problem of rising Jew hatred in America and globally; and the need to prepare for waves of Aliya (immigration to Israel).
How to absorb so many Aliya immigrants?
Dr. Kedar asks at the end of his article, “…what steps to take in order to absorb these future and blessed waves of immigration successfully.”
The shortest answer possible, that would make the most impact, is to pass a Basic Law making English an official language of the State of Israel.
I ask, what language does the Jew from America, England, France, Russia, Brazil and Argentina have in common?
I’m sorry to say their “Safa Shitufit” (common language), is not Hebrew!
The sad reality is that, beyond the English-speaking “Galut” (exile), most Jews globally, if they learn a second language, most likely learned English not Hebrew first.
What would making English an official language of the State of Israel mean?
Official documents from all the ministries of government would need to have English versions. Business contracts, court proceedings, etc. would need to be “English friendly.” This would make the “Klita,” absorption process much easier for them.
Immediately there would be increased employment for New “Olim” (immigrants) and “Vatikim” (older immigrants), who did know Hebrew, in jobs needing translation.
English would also rise in prominence, in the educational system, and that would have long-term positive consequences to the Israeli economy. Do I need to explain further?
Lowering the language barrier to mass immigration for world Jewry, is a Zionist imperative.
Then once here, we can eventually worry about ulpans and teaching Hebrew to them, also..!
