Welcome Home to the New Olim (and 382 photos)

Hi Everyone!

Congratulations and welcome home to the 239 new olim that made aliyah to Israel from North America. The NBN aliyah charter flight arrived in Israel on Thursday morning and included 103 children in 41 families and 58 singles. The youngest oleh in the group is 7 weeks old and the oldest oleh is 82 years old. The flight also included 4 dogs and 1 cat.

I took 382 photos of the exciting, historic event and I posted them online at:

I also posted the 382 photos on Facebook for name tagging. There are two 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.

Shabbat Shalom,

Amen! Keep up your amazing work, Jacob. Your photos are probably responsible for lighting more than a few sparks of the aliyah dream.
