New immigrants from America hailing from many walks of life, ranging from young students to retirees, arrived Wednesday on a Nefesh b’Nefesh flight.

A diverse group of 225 Americans immigrated to Israel last week on a Nefesh B’Nefesh chartered aliyah flight.

The 63rd Aliyah flight organized by Nefesh B’Nefesh included 40 young men and women who will be joining the IDF as “lone soldiers,” meaning they have no immediate family in the country.

Marc Rosenberg, VP Diaspora Partnerships in Nefesh B’Nefesh, discusses the exciting flight and the reasons why so many Jews are coming home!
