"In the Torah scrolls of Moshe (Moses) dating back to 1400 BCE, there is an instruction requiring the Israelites to make Pilgrimage to Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) three times throughout the year, to celebrate the festival of Pesach, Shavuot, and Sukkot
Today the children of Israel are scattered all throughout the nations, and going up to Yerushalayim, known as making 'Aliyah', is a great challenge.
This is the inspiration behind the game Aliyah.
Aliyah is a three person strategy board game in which players must maneuver their game pieces to obtain a Sphere from the three Pilgrimage Festivals,
then position them in a straight line across Yerushalayim, declaring 'aliyah' and winning the game"
