The 2015 summer aliya season kicked off Thursday with the arrival of 71 new olim from the United States on a Nefesh B’Nefesh aliya group flight in partnership with the Immigration and Absorption Ministry, the Jewish Agency for Israel, KKL and JNF-USA.

The olim – ranging in age from one to 66 years old - hail from over 21 different US States. The new Israeli citizens will be moving to Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and to cities as far as Eilat in the South and Karmiel in the North.

Among the olim were 32 future lone soldiers planning to join the IDF in August. Nefesh B’Nefesh is expecting to greet more than 2,000 Olim this summer.

"This country was fought for and built by young Zionists who came to Israel in pursuit of a dream," said Tracy Frydberg from San Antonio, Texas. “Now it is my turn to follow in their footsteps and give my everything to the Jewish state, which I was raised to love.”
