True joy and pride were at peak levels in Ben Gurion Airport Thursday morning as a planeload of olim from the United States arrived on a Nefesh B'Nefesh flight.

"This is like 40 years of a dream coming true… love it!"… "Why do we do it? Because we looove Israel! Woooo!"… "It's a fulfillment of a prophecy after 2,000 years. May I feel this way every day!"… "I'm so happy I've been crying the whole flight"…

These were some of the utterances made by joyful olim who spoke to Arutz Sheva upon landing in Israel.

All we can add is: Bruchim haba'im – welcome! May we all feel this way every day.
