Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will greet three chartered flights of Jewish immigrants from the US, Canada and UK that will land simultaneously in Israel Wednesday morning, resulting in a day of record setting Western immigration. The US flight, departing JFK, will also carry Israeli Ambassador to the US Danny Ayalon. The expected arrival of more than 800 North American and British Jews on Wednesday is part of a six day global campaign by Nefesh B'Nefesh, an organization dedicated to the revitalization of 'Aliyah' (immigration to Israel), in close cooperation with the Jewish Agency for Israel.
