Nearly 1,000 Kids Making Aliyah in 2013

| |

The Nefesh B’Nefesh first ever ‘Children Aliyah’ flight landed safely at Ben-Gurion Airport on Tuesday morning. On the El Al flight, 106 children with their parents, along with 54 singles, left North America to make their new homes in Israel.

The flight itself was a little unusual – coloring books, games and custom-made T-shirts were all prepared beforehand to keep the children occupied during the long flight.

“We are supporting this project because this is the best of Zionistic endeavors,” said Shamai Keinan, a member of the Keren Kayemeth L’Israel Board of Directors, who accompanied the group of new olim during the flight.

“This is the 50th plane of olim that Nefesh B’Nefesh has sent Israel in the past seven years,” Keinan told Tazpit News Agency. “It is a very blessed and moving journey for all the families and people involved.”
