ISRAEL - Program for High-Tech Workers to Return

Arno Froese

A new program initiated by the Israel Innovation Authority will try to bring back Israeli hi-tech workers living abroad to fill thousands of available positions.

Israel’s hi-tech sector has long complained about the lack of available talent for science, development and technology positions. But the sector’s massive growth in recent months and years has exacerbated the situation.

There are not enough qualified people in the country to fill the 18,500 positions existing in the hi-tech sector, according to Yotam Tzuker of CQ Global, which will manage the program.

Meanwhile, the coronavirus pandemic has encouraged many Israelis to return home. An estimated 600,000 Israelis currently live abroad, 10,000 of whom have a technological background.

The new program, Back2Tech, opens with an online meeting of Israeli hi-tech figures who will outline a variety of employment opportunities in companies and development centers operating in Israel. The goal of the program is to allow Israeli hi-tech workers and their families to return to Israel with a guaranteed job.

Arno's Commentary

While some foreign countries may be attractive to Israelis—particularly those with high-tech qualifications and experience—Israel’s near-phenomenal growth in the high-tech sector provides increasingly more opportunities for such employment and for Jews to return home.

Zechariah 8:8 proclaims, “And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness.”
