AHDUT LEMAEAN ALIYAH ("Union for Aliyah," in Hebrew)

Israeli political organization, created in April 1996 in anticipation of the May Knesset elections, when representatives and the prime minister were to be elected for the first time by universal suffrage. A party of immigrants, this organization was led by Ephraim Gur, a Likud deputy who had quit the Labor Party in June 1990, and by Yaacov Feitelson. This organization won no seats in the Knesset in the elections.
