Nefesh B'Nefesh, an organization which facilitates aliya from North America, will mark its 10th anniversary this Thursday with a special flight bringing 229 Americans and Canadians to Israel.

The olim will be welcomed upon arrival in a special ceremony attended by Minister of Immigrant Absorption Sofa Landver, Jewish Agency for Israel Chairman Nathan Sharansky and MK Danny Danon. Nefesh B'Nefesh was founded in 2002 by Rabbi Yehoshua Fass and Tony Gelbart to ease the hardships of immigrating to Israel.

The group has helped cut red tape, find employment for olim and put them in touch with more other new Israelis, who come from similar backgrounds. This summer about 2,500 North American Jews are expected to arrive in Israel on flights organized by Nefesh B'Nefesh in cooperation with JAFI and the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption.
