Welcome Home to the New Olim and photos at the airport


Hi Everyone!

Congratulations and welcome home to the 232 new olim that made aliyah to Israel from North America. The NBN aliyah charter flight arrived in Israel this morning (Tuesday, August 18) and included 75 children in 29 families and 86 singles. The youngest oleh in the group is four months old and the oldest oleh is 79 years old. 59 of the group will be volunteering for the IDF.

I took 328 photos of this historic and exciting event and I posted them online at:
www.history-of-israel.co.il/aliyah/2015/a881.htm

I also uploaded the photos to Facebook for name tagging.
The Facebook album address is:

If you have a Facebook account and you are in the photos or you see someone you know, please feel free to name tag the photos.

Please share the photos with friends. Thank you!

May the aliyah from all over the world grow and bring more Jews back to their homeland, Eretz Yisrael.

Have a great day,
Jacob

Educational Resources about Tisha B'Av

Shalom.

Tisha B'Av is the saddest day on the Jewish calendar because of the incredible series of tragedies which occurred on that date throughout Jewish History.

Tisha B'Av means "the ninth (day) of the Hebrew month of Av."
Tisha B'Av primarily commemorates the destruction of the first and second Temples, both of which were destroyed on the ninth of Av (the first by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.E.; the second by the Romans in 70 C.E.).

Although this day is primarily meant to commemorate the destruction of the Temple, it is appropriate to consider on this day the many other tragedies of the Jewish people, many of which occurred on this day, most notably the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492.

You can learn more about this Jewish fast day at:
www.jr.co.il/hotsites/tisha-b-av.htm

May we see the rebuilding of the Temple in our days and that Tisha B'Av becomes a day of celebration.

If you are fasting:
Have a meaningful fast.

Jacob
