Yad L’Achim was founded soon after the establishment of the state, during Operation Magic Carpet - the dramatic airlift that brought Yemenite Jews to Israel. Since then, Yad L’Achim has been there for every wave of immigrants, including those from Romania, Hungary, Morocco, Algiers, Tunis, Libya, Bukharan, Georgia and the Caucasus Mountain region. It provided assistance to Syrian Jews who arrived surreptitiously and Soviet Jews who came in a massive wave of aliyah in the 1990s.
Yad L’Achim has left its mark on each era with activities that included: establishing shuls, creating networks of Torah classes, organizing seminars in Judaism for immigrants, publishing Torah literature in a variety of languages and registering children in Torah institutions.
