Israel's President Reuven Rivlin extended a hearty welcome this morning (Tuesday) to 109 new immigrants from the United States and Canada who have just landed at Ben Gurion Airpot and who plan to enlist in the IDF as Lone Soldiers.

President Rivlin told them, "The State of Israel values your dedication, your courage and your sincere Zionism."

"Your presence here today," he continued, "gives us strength, and brings home to us warmth and support of American and Canadian Jewry."
