Welcome Home to the New Olim (and 317 photos)

Hi Everyone!

Congratulations and welcome home to the 245 new olim that made aliyah to Israel from North America. The NBN aliyah charter flight arrived in Israel on Tuesday morning and included 103 children in 45 families and 51 singles. The youngest oleh in the group is 2 months old and the oldest oleh is 81 years old.
The flight also included 6 dogs and 1 cat.

I took 317 photos of the exciting, historic event and I posted them online at:

I also posted the 317 photos on Facebook for name tagging. There are two sets of photos and you can access the albums via:


If you have a Facebook account 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,

I was there too, it is a rare feeling of elation. I urge you to take your kids, neighbours' kids, the man from the makolet, everyone (just preregister on NBN). Just as a picture paints a thousand words, an hour in the company of excited new olim is a meaningful emotional and spiritual experience and also helps Israeli kids internalize what their own parents (or grandparents) did and why.
Thanks to Jacob for taking care of the photography!
