Aliyah is a hebrew word, it means ‘to go up’ and it is mostly used for the immigration of jews to Israel.
Now, what has this got to do with us here in Catalunya?
Well, there is this guy, a Catalan by the name of Salvador Dali, who painted a series of 25 pieces on the subject of the aliyah, for the 20eth anniversary of the founding (or rebirth) of the State of Israel. Here are a few of them, to be admired at the Teatro Museo Dali in Figueres, 130 km north of Barcelona.
This post is dedicated to our Friend Dina, who made her personal aliyah in 1968.
