Welcome Home to the New Olim (and 276 photos)

Hi Everyone!

Congratulations and welcome home to the 360 new olim that made aliyah to Israel from North America. The NBN aliyah charter flight arrived in Israel on Tuesday morning and included 120 children in 52 families and 133 singles. The youngest oleh in the group is 5 months old and the oldest oleh is 82 years old. The flight also included 10 dogs, 1 cat and 1 snake.

I took 276 photos of the exciting, historic event and I posted them online at:

I also posted the 276 photos on Facebook for name tagging. There are two sets of photos and you can access the albums via: http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif

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,
