“As we watch each oleh grow and build new lives in Israel, we are extremely proud... and look forward to affecting even more change in North American aliyah in the decade to come,” Rabbi Fass said.

Nefesh B'Nefesh has welcomed over 36,000 olim - immigrants who made aliyah - into Israel over the past decade.
By partnering with Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael, Israel’s Aliyah and Integration Ministry, the Jewish Agency for Israel and Jewish National Fund-USA, NBN has assisted in the aliyah processes of over 60,000 olim since its inception in 2002 - including 36,196 who made aliyah over the past decade, 3,570 of whom moved to Israel this year.
Additionally, Nefesh B'Nefesh offers ongoing support after a person has made aliyah; the organization has helped 90% of their immigrants finding a lasting home in Israel, as opposed to emigrating back to their home country
“Each individual oleh represents an entire family, community and dynamic life experience which has been forever transformed through aliyah and the fulfillment of centuries of yearning and dreaming for the return to the Jewish homeland,” said Rabbi Yehoshua Fass, co-founder and executive director of Nefesh B’Nefesh. “As we watch each oleh grow and build their new lives in Israel, we are extremely proud of what we have accomplished together – and look forward to affecting even more change in North American aliyah in the decade to come.”
NBN olim over the past decade mainly hail from  New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, Montreal, Baltimore, Chicago, Teaneck, South Florida, Atlanta and Boston. 
The data shows that 10,982 families, 14,225 singles and 5,517 retirees made aliyah and decided to move their lives to Israel since 2010. Among those were 431 physicians, 1,618 other medical profession and 5,678 young men and women who came with the desire to serve their country as lone soldiers.
