Welcome Home to the New Olim (and pictures)

Hi Everyone!

On Monday morning, September 8, 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 91 singles (including 18 joining the IDF) and 34 families with 53 children. The youngest oleh in the group is three months old and the oldest oleh is 85 years old. The flight also included 10 dogs.

I took 272 pictures of the exciting event and I posted them online at:

I also copied 260 of the 272 pictures to Facebook for name tagging.
There are five sets of pictures and the address of the first set is:

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

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

Shana Tova - Have a Good Year,
