Last week, 232 North American Jews traded in their lives in the US, for new ones in Israel. The Jerusalem Post accompanied several of these new immigrants before, during and after their journeys.
The Goldfeder family moved to Tel Mond in central Israel, from Queens, New York City. Corey works for Google and has transferred to the Tel Aviv office, and Chani will look for work as a psychologist after she has transferred her license to an Israeli one. The Goldfeders are among over half of the olim (new immigrants) on their flight last week who define themselves as orthodox or modern orthodox.

For Shelly and Phillip Stein,
aliya has also been a lifelong dream. But one they waited until retirement to realize.
21-year-old Alexander Hymowitz from Brooklyn, is soon to be what is known a lone soldier- someone who comes alone to Israel to serve in the IDF.
Last Monday, these three sets of olim boarded the same plane, chartered by Nefesh B'Nefesh, on a one way ticket to Israel.
