The importance of Hebrew ulpan as part of the absorption process cannot be overemphasized. The language skills you acquire in ulpan will benefit you through every phase of your absorption, including finding a place to live, looking for employment, and building relationships with veteran Israelis.
During ulpan you will learn about and experience Israeli society, politics, and culture, while getting to know those institutions, authorities, and agencies that you will be dealing with in the future.
In any country, language is the basic tool of the worker. Therefore a high-level knowledge of Hebrew is essential. Even in those rare situations where immigrant work entirely with speakers of their mother tongue, it is still necessary to deal with the entities that make up the social services network. Furthermore, lectures, seminars, and workshops are usually conducted in Hebrew.
It is important to register at a Hebrew ulpan as soon as possible after obtaining new immigrant status in Israel. New immigrants are usually eligible to receive a subsidy of their ulpan study.
In order to find out about ulpan options, consult your personal absorption counselor at a local office of the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption. The counselor will confirm your eligibility for a subsidy of your ulpan study and refer you to non-residential, Ministry-approved ulpanim in your area.
