To make Aliyah you need to follow certain steps.
A good start is to get familiar with the World Zionist Organization's Habayta department.
The Establishment of Habayta – the WZO's Aliyah Promotion unit, is designed to fulfill one of the goals of the Zionist movement – the settlement of the Jewish State of Israel.
"We, in "Habayta", work to encourage Aliyah to Israel through public dialogue on the subject. We aim to nurture and support the Aliyah process by developing a sense of community and by strengthening the connections to Israel, promoting various projects that will assist in making the major and most important decision – Aliyah to Israel – Zionism's major objective.
As one of the WZO's flagship programs, Habayta is run from the Jerusalem office of the WZO collaborating with all the organization's departments and partners, with our regional representatives located in various parts of the world, activist federations and organizations, denominations, religious movements and youth movements.
In addition, we cooperate with the diaspora communities - synagogue, school, university and parents activists.
We, in "Habayta" fully cooperate with members of Jewish communities on a variety of activities that are determined depending on the nature of the community and its specific needs."

In Sweden you can study hebrew at Lunds University.
Historically Hebrew is regarded as the language of the Israelites and their ancestors. Hebrew flourished as a spoken language in the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah during about 1200 to 586 BCE.
Among the earliest examples of written Hebrew date from the 10th century BCE, i e around 3,000 years ago.
Hebrew is the only living Canaanite language left, and the only truly successful example of a revived dead language.
The modern English word "Hebrew" is derived from Old French Ebrau, via Latin from the Greek Ἑβραῖος (Hebraîos) and Aramaic 'ibrāy, all ultimately derived from Biblical Hebrew Ibri (עברי), one of several names for the Israelite (Jewish and Samaritan) people i e Hebrews.
It's traditionally understood to be an adjective based on the name of Abraham's ancestor, Eber, mentioned in Genesis 10:21. The name is believed to be based on the Semitic root ʕ-b-r (עבר) meaning "beyond", "other side", "across"; interpretations of the term "Hebrew" generally render its meaning as roughly "from the other side [of the river/desert]"—i e, an exonym for the inhabitants of the land of Israel, Judah and Samaria, from the perspective of Mesopotamia (with the river referenced to the Euphrates and the Arabian Desert between Babylonia and Canaan).
Hebrew survived into the medieval period as the language of Jewish liturgy, rabbinic literature, intra-Jewish commerce, and poetry.
In the 19th century, hebrew was again revived as a spoken and literary language. It became the lingua franca of Jews in Eretz Yisrael (the Jewish Homeland), and subsequently of the Jewish State of Israel.
