Who is the Auckland Jewish Immigration?

The AJI (Auckland Jewish Immigration) is a voluntary organization and our services are free. One of its key objectives is to welcome, settle and help integrate newly arrived families not only into the congregation but also into the broader community irrespective of affiliation. The only condition is that you become a member of the basic associations that are fundamental and essential to our community's welfare.

One of the purposes of the AJI is to bolster the numbers of members to strengthen and enrich the future of the AHC (Auckland Hebrew Congregation). If you qualify and are prepared to join our congregation as a member of the AHC, we will do all we can to smooth the way for you to be able to immigrate.

Since 2001 we have helped over 2100 people immigrate to New Zealand.

The AHC has been established in Auckland for over 150 years. It is a warm, caring, closely knit congregation with a wide range of organizations and activities, and would welcome potential new members as part of its extended congregational family.
