August 2019: Aliyah Tovah

August 2019 continued the summer momentum as we welcomed an Aliyah charter flight and three group flights and hosted “Aliyah Tovah” an end-of-summer Aliyah celebration with 2,200 new Olim.

August 2019 Charter Flight

They’ve arrived! 242 brand-new Olim – on the “Heidi Rothberg Aliyah Flight”!

The new Olim are from a variety of backgrounds– hailing from 22 US states and two Canadian provinces. They include 103 children under the age of 17, 41 future Lone Soldiers, 2 National Service volunteers, 21 medical professionals, three sets of twins, and a 28-day-old baby, who officially became the youngest Oleh to make Aliyah with Nefesh B’Nefesh this summer.

ALIYAH TOVAH  End-of-summer Bash

2,200!!! That’s how many of you we partied with at the Aliyah Tovah Summer Party at Mini Israel!

A fun time was had by all! Nefesh B’Nefesh Olim and staff families enjoyed the evening making crafts, playing in the gymboree, touring mini sights, watching a movie, paddle boating, enjoying the band…

If you were there, tag yourselves, add your own pictures in the comments, and let us know how you spent your time. We loved meeting so many of you!

Open to all past Nefesh B’Nefesh Olim during the last week before school begins in Israel. The first-ever “Aliyah Tovah” event offered both new and veteran Nefesh B’Nefesh Olim the opportunity to explore Israel’s culture and history through the sites of Park Mini Israel and enjoy a variety of activities for all ages. This event which celebrated the high number of Olim who made Aliyah this past summer, was facilitated in cooperation with Israel’s Ministry of Aliyah & Integration, The Jewish Agency for Israel, Keren Kayemeth Le’Israel (KKL), and Jewish National Fund-USA.

This event provided families with the perfect opportunity to get out with their children during the last week of Summer, when there are few camps still running and school has not yet begun.

Every month we highlight great Aliyah stories, practical tips for living in Israel on and Olim finding success and fulfillment on our Facebook page and Instagram. Check out some of our recent videos below.

The Mandelbaums reflect on five years of AlIyah

This was about looking forward and what I have realized is that I changed the history dare I say the destiny of my family especially for my kids. That was my goal in moving, to give them a better opportunity and purpose in life than I had growing up…


Community Building

60 Olim joined us for an amazing Thai cooking class with Citrus and Salt! We learned how to make spring rolls with everything from tofu to fish sauce, got to try our hand at green papaya salad, and were treated with an amazing dessert of coconut sticky rice with mango. It was the perfect way to meet other Olim, while learning out to make some new foods to try at home.

The Pomerantzs’ Go North!

Wishing an #AliyahTovah and a BIG MAZAL TOV to the Pomerantz family of 7 who landed yesterday and headed to their new home in Maalot.

They made Aliyah from Olney, Maryland because it’s beautiful, affordable, they wanted their family of 7 to be comfortable in a larger house, and it fits their “vibe” ;-)

International Lone Soldier Grant Ceremony for new Olim who will be enlisting in the IDF

These future lone soldiers received practical information on starting their journey in the IDF from the LSP’s staff, as well as small financial grants to help them through their service.

Many of the new Olim will be starting their army service in Michve Alon in order to work on their Hebrew, and to gain practical tools to ensure an easier integration into the IDF and Israeli society as a whole. Following Michve Alon, the lone soldiers will be serving in a variety of units including Paratroopers, Maglan, Duvdevan, Nahal Brigade, Golani Brigade and more.
