Hundreds from US and Canada made Aliyah today

"Heveinu Shalom Aleichem ~ We have brought you peace."

Hundreds of new immigrants arrived in Israel today from North America. According to Arutz Sheva, the number was 330. The JTA reported 500, the Jerusalem Post, 930. Also today, 150 olim will arrive from France, Argentina and elsewhere. And another flight, carrying 350 MORE North American olim, will arrive later this month.

Much financial aid for the North American olim is coming from Nefesh b'Nefesh. The mission of Nefesh b'Nefesh is to "revitalize North American Aliyah and to expand it for generations to come by removing the financial, professional, and logistical obstacles that prevent many 'would-be' Olim from fulfilling their dream. In the process, we hope to send an unmistakable signal of North American-Israeli Jewish solidarity and joint determination to strengthen the State of Israel."

Kol hakavod!
