235 new immigrants (עולים חדשים) landed in Ben Gurion airport, Israel, on August 13th.
The Jewish immigrants made aliyah (עליה) from North America to Israel. These “Olim Xadashim” came to Israel thanks to the cooperation of “Jewish Agency for Israel” (הסוכנות היהודית) and “NBN” – “Nefesh B’Nefesh” (נפש בנפש). It’s very exciting when new Olim come to Israel. There’s also a Hebrew saying that states “From Oleh to Oleh our power increases” (מעולה לעולה כוחינו עולה), and so it’s always a happy event to see new Olim here.
Here are some pictures from the event:
