I've heard a lot that making Aliyah to Israel is really good, that it's a mitzvah and even that it's an obligation if you can. But how important it is to make Aliyah? Could you give me references/quotes?

Rabbi Moshe Feinstein ruled that there is no obligation to move to Israel nowadays, but if one does they fulfill a positive mitzvah of the Torah. See Igros Moshe, Even Ha'ezer (a), page 253, last paragraph of responsa 102.

    Could you please edit in your source from Rav Moshe (where he said this)?
