In June alone, Nefesh B'Nefesh reported that they received 1,350 immigration applications, compared to 399 in June of last year.
This year, nearly 25,000 families contacted the organization about making aliyah in the first three weeks of June.
"We have recently been heavily investing on encouraging aliyah to Jerusalem, while at the same time focusing on assisting the olim transition into their new lives in the city."
In the first half of June, over 900 applications have been submitted to the group for making the move to Israel, or aliyah, compared to 399 in June 2019.
The growth of interest in immigration to Israel comes amid the coronavirus pandemic that has severely impacted Jewish communities in the United States.
The many participants in Nefesh B’Nefesh webinars augur well for an increase in college and young-professional aliyah.
The immigrant was on a plane with 49 others who arrived in Israel on June 9.
