242 North American Olim are arriving in Israel on Wednesday on a special Aliyah flight chartered by Nefesh B’Nefesh, facilitated in cooperation with Israel’s Aliyah & Integration Ministry, The Jewish Agency for Israel, Keren Kayemeth Le’Israel (KKL), and Jewish National Fund-USA.

The new Olim are from a variety of backgrounds culturally and demographically – hailing from 22 US states and two Canadian provinces. They also include 21 medical professionals, three sets of twins, and a 28-day-old baby, who will officially become the youngest Oleh to make Aliyah with Nefesh B’Nefesh this summer.

A special welcome ceremony will be held at Ben Gurion Airport upon arrival and is scheduled to include Aliyah and Integration Minister Yoav Galant; KKL World Chairman Danny Atar; Jewish Agency CEO and Director Amira Ahronoviz; Federation of Local Authorities in Israel Chairman and Modi'in- Maccabim-Reut Mayor Chaim Bibas; with Nefesh B’Nefesh co-Founders Rabbi Yehoshua Fass and Tony Gelbart.
