Jewish Agency chairman Natan Sharansky welcomed 232 new immigrants, including a 95-year-old woman, to Israel Tuesday as they stepped off the first summer flight of the Nefesh b'Nefesh aliyah organization.

Sharansky called on the olim [new immigrants] to tour the land with an open Bible in order to witness how Biblical stories come to life in the land of the Bible.


Arutz Sheva TV talked with 95-year-old Zelda Weiner, the oldest new immigrant on the Nefesh B'Nefesh flight - the youngest was five months old.
