4000 new olim (immigrants) arrived during the war
4,000 Jews Immigrated to Israel During WarAnd 550 more new immigrants will arrive tomorrow morning, on three chartered El-Al Flights from New York, Toronto and London. According to the reports not a single person backed out or postponed their arrival because of the war. And I can tell you from my personal experience the war has sparked interest in aliyah to a high degree --I still have nearly 60 emails to respond to from people asking questions about how they go about it (and have been answering everyone as fast as I can over the last few weeks --those in the queue please be patient I'm getting to you). Yalla l'Aliyah!!
