Belated: 290 Make Aliyah Towards Israel!

Almost 300 Jews decided to pack up their stuff, say farewell to their friends and make Aliyah towards the holy land! What makes this news even sweeter is the fact that almost a third of them were children.

(Israel National News) More than 100 children were among the 290 new "anglo" immigrants who landed at Ben Gurion International Airport Tuesday morning.

An El Al plane, the fourth of five Nefesh B'Nefesh summer aliyah flights from New York, also carried Israel's newest citizens from Canada, as it touched down just minutes after the seventh Nefesh B'Nefesh group flight from the UK. [...]

Among the 240 new Israelis arriving from New York were 100 children, 46 families, 18 singles and six IDF soldiers, with the immigrants ranging in age from one month old to 72.

While the group is not as large as the last one highlighted on IsraGood, it's still good to see so many parents choosing to raise their kids in Israel instead of abroad.

Note: Jacob Richman (of Good News from Israel) took way too many pictures (note: which is always a good thing) which may appeal to those who can not satisfy their thirst of seeing Jews make Aliyah towards Israel.
