Over 200 people gathered in Tel Aviv Thursday night to celebrate a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, complete with turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, wine and beer.
Nefesh B'Nefesh's 11th annual My Big Fat TLV Thanksgiving hosted olim, lone soldiers, visitors from abroad and Israelis from around the country, as they packed the hall in Tel Aviv to taste a little bit of the American custom in Israel.
The Thanksgiving dinner, which was hosted by Nefesh B’Nefesh, Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF), the Ministry of Aliyah & Immigrant Absorption, the Jewish Agency for Israel, and JNF-USA, aims to allow young immigrants without family in Israel to celebrate the traditional holiday – with an Israeli flavor.
