This past Thursday, July 4th, Beth and Paul White, from New Rochelle, New York became Israel's newest citizens just in time to attend the brit mila of their sabra grandchild. The Whites rushed from the airport straight to Beth Shemesh for the early afternoon celebration of their grandson’s circumcision, born to their son and daughter-in-law Amir and Ita.

The Whites arrived on a Nefesh B’Nefesh group Aliyah flight, in partnership with Israel’s Ministry of Aliyah and Integration, The Jewish Agency for Israel, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael (KKL) and the Jewish National Fund-USA.
Five of the Whites’ children have made Aliyah via Nefesh B’Nefesh, and their daughter will be making Aliyah on the organization’s charter Aliyah flight this August.
Beth and Paul White will be moving to Modi’in, where Paul will continue working as a physician, and Beth will enjoy her retirement.
