Welcome Home to the New Olim (and 453 photos)

Hi Everyone!

On Wednesday morning, August 19, 2009, I was at Ben-Gurion airport to greet the new olim that made aliyah from North America to Israel.



There were 366 olim on the flight including 61 singles (including 22 joining the IDF) and 67 families with 168 children.

The youngest oleh in the group is 7 weeks old and the oldest oleh is 88 years old. The flight also included 6 dogs and 1 turtle.

I took 453 pictures of the exciting event and I posted them online at:

I also posted the 453 photos on Facebook for name tagging.
There are three sets of photos and you can access the albums via:

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

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
