The Aliyah Revolution Has Begun

The President of Israel, along with other officials stood by to greet 240 of Israel's newest citizens making Aliyah to the holy land.

( President Moshe Katzav, Absorption Minister Ze'ev Boim and other officials were on hand today to greet Israel's newest 240 citizens. Their move to Israel was facilitated by the Nefesh B'Nefesh organization, which has similarly helped some 7,000 Jews to come home over the past four years.

One man making Aliyah had a t-shirt that read, "Aliyah Revolution, It Has Begun" proudly displayed across his chest. Israel's latest citizens ranged from the religious to the regular looking, as well as little kids accompanying their parents.

What is interesting is that one of the travelers knew that living in Israel would be harder than staying in America. But he summed up his reasons for leaving by saying he would rather be "living a life full of meaning" than one in simple comfort.
