Nefesh B’Nefesh is well-known for its summer flights which bring olim (new immigrants) to Israel, but the organization is more than just about summer operations. In fact, Nefesh B’Nefesh brings olim from all over the world all year long.

The latest group of new immigrants arrived in Israel on a Nefesh B’Nefesh flight on Tuesday. As they arrived, the excited olim told Arutz Sheva, “We’ve come home.”

Lizi Martin of Nefesh B’Nefesh told Arutz Sheva that groups of people who wish to make aliyah together come to Israel every few weeks. Nefesh B’Nefesh, she added, helps facilitate the aliyah process, meeting the olim at the airports in their countries of origin as well as when they land at Ben Gurion Airport.

“This is the greatest day of my life,” one of the new olim said. “I’ve been here three times and every time I went back to the United States I would say to myself, ‘Why? Why did I leave?’ Now I’m here and I’m staying and it makes perfect sense.”
