Welcome Home to the New Olim (and pictures)

Hi Everyone!

On Tuesday morning, July 7, 2009, I was at Ben-Gurion airport to greet the new olim that made aliyah from North America to Israel.

There were 232 olim on the flight including 60 singles (including 22 joining the IDF) and 42 families with 93 children.

The youngest oleh in the group is 7 weeks old and the oldest oleh is 83 years old. The flight also included 7 dogs and 1 cat.

I took 294 pictures of the exciting event and I posted them online at:

I also posted the 294 pictures on Facebook for name tagging.There are two sets of pictures.

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.

Have a good day,
Jacob
