Never Too Late: Aliya at 99

A 99-year-old New York woman is planning to make aliya [moving to Israel] in October, following two other women of that age who have moved to Israel in the past year. Dina Noth, a Holocaust survivor, plans to leave her old age home facility and join her more than 40 relatives living in Israel.
 
Two other women aged 99 moved to Israel earlier this year and last year from England and from the United States. The oldest person ever to make aliya was a 102-year-old woman several years ago.
