Read the JewishIsrael article on this. Very nice; but we must be very suspect because it seems many are thinking of making Aliyah. The first thing that comes to mind is infiltration. It already exists and Aliyah should be dissauded at first to those whom we know nothing about yet. Instead, it should be promoted to 'Jews' first. There is something wrong with pushing Judaism on those who are not Jews; while there is so much assimilation, intermarriage and ignorance amongst the Jewish people. The last few decades have been a disaster.
