Welcome Home to the New Olim (and photos)

Hi Everyone!

Congratulations and welcome home to the 238 new olim that made aliyah to Israel from North America. The NBN aliyah charter flight arrived in Israel this morning (Tuesday, July 22). During these difficult days, may this aliyah give hope, strength and optimism to the entire Jewish nation.

I took 168 photos of this historic event and I posted them
online at:

I also posted the 168 photos on Facebook for name tagging.
The Facebook album address is:

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.

May the wounded have a speedy and full recovery.

Videos of the Fountainheads performing at the Salute to Olim Festival

Hi Everyone!

The end of August is my 30th anniversary in Israel.
For the past 30 years, I find it amazing how the country switches
within 24 hours from one of the saddest days of the year,
Yom Ha'zikaron, to one of the happiest days of the year,
Yom Ha'aztmaut.

This week the whole country mourned its three sons and we are
worried about our brothers and sisters who are in bomb shelters
in Sderot. A very hard week.

Today, a large group in Jerusalem made the "switch" to enjoy
the Salute to Olim Festival.
Kol Hakavod to the organizers. It was very nice!

I took photos and posted them online at:

The Fountainheads gave a great performance.
I posted 4 videos online:
