4000 new olim (immigrants) arrived during the war

4,000 Jews Immigrated to Israel During War
12:13 Aug 15, '06 / 21 Av 5766

(IsraelNN.com) During the course of the war, more than 4,000 Jews from around the world immigrated to Israel, the Jewish Agency announced Monday.
And 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!!
