A Spanish-language film by the United Jewish Appeal and Keren Hayesod, showcasing the immigration and integration of Jews in the State of Israel. Most of the film focuses on the various ways in which olim can learn Hebrew: elementary schools, ulpanim, volunteer organizations that come to teach in olim homes, distribution of newspapers written in a language accessible to everyone, and specialized radio programs. All of these efforts are aimed at enabling new immigrants to adapt and find their place in Israel.
