A class of 33 eighth grade students from Hebrew University High School (Leyada) in Jerusalem greeted the oldest couple to make aliyah in the history of Israel earlier this month. The Israeli students, aged thirteen to fourteen years old; many with parents or grandparents who happened to have made aliyah, have spent the past two months studying aliyah in a special class project about olim from the early stages of the Yishuv to modern day Israel.
