This summer, Nefesh B’Nefesh plans to bring 2,000 olim to Israel, and Sunday’s flight (July 17, 2016) is the first of two charters set to help reach that goal.

An El Al plane chartered by Nefesh B’Nefesh carrying 218 new immigrants to Israel arrived at Ben-Gurion Airport Tuesday morning (July 19, 2016) from New York. Entering the Terminal 1 arrivals hall, some olim waved Israeli flags while others blew a shofar.“We are celebrating today the aliya of hundreds of new olim who will begin their lives in the Jewish State, many of whom are modern-day pioneers moving to Israel’s North and South,” Nefesh B’Nefesh co-founder and director Rabbi Yehoshua Fass told the immigrants, many with tears in their eyes, who were welcomed by family members, friends and an IDF delegation. “The thousands of Jews that will be returning to their homeland from the Diaspora over the course of this year are an inspiration to us all.” Read the full story here.
