250 North American immigrants to arrive Wednesday

Another 250 North American olim are set to arrive in Israel on Wednesday on a chartered El-Al flight. The arrival of the seventh Nefesh B'Nefesh flight this year makes 2005 the year with the most American and Canadian newcomers since 1984. Over 7,000 North American Jews have moved to Israel through Nefesh B'Nefesh, more than 3,100 of whom will have come this year alone.
