Welcome Home to the New Olim (and pictures)

Hi Everyone!

On Wednesday morning, August 13, 2008, I was at Ben-Gurion airport to greet the new olim that made aliyah from North America to Israel.

There were 235 olim on the flight including 63 singles (including 43 joining the IDF), 36 families with 93 children. The youngest oleh in the group is 5 months old and the oldest oleh is 96 years old. The flight also included 2 dogs and 3 cats.

I took 356 pictures of the exciting event and I posted them online at:

When the first page appears, press the F11 key to view the full length of the pictures. To move from page to page, use the navigation buttons on the bottom of the screen.

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

Have a good day,
