Congratulations to the New Olim and 493 pictures posted online

Hi Everyone!

On Tuesday, September 4, I was at Ben-Gurion airport to greet the new olim that made aliyah from North America to Israel.

Congratulations to the 210 olim that have returned to their homeland. The excitement was everywhere and you knew that Jewish history was unfolding before your very eyes.

This last flight of summer 2007 included 96 singles and 29 families with 46 children. The youngest oleh in the group is 5 weeks old and the oldest oleh is 93 years old. The flight also included 4 dogs and 2 cats.

I took 331 pictures of the exciting event and I posted them online at:

Jonathan Stein was also at the airport and I posted (thanks Jonathan) 162 of his pictures at:

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

Shana Tova!
