Nefesh B’nefesh – “Life In Israel”

Aliyah has come a long, long way since Avraham was commanded, “Go to the Land…”. There may have been less bureaucratic offices to deal with back then, but the challenge was still great. Without flinching, Avraham rose to that challenge in a manner that still inspires every Jewish soul today. Today there are more and more “modern-day Avraham Avinus” who are returning to Eretz Yisrael, on their own or with their family, and successfully building their lives and future.

As you sit in shul this Shabbat, and hear the words read from the Torah “Lech lecha…”, take these words into your heart. Hashem was speaking not only to Avraham. Hashem is speaking to you today as well.

This past Summer, Nefesh B’Nefesh presented you with photographic highlights from the seven flights that delivered over 2300 Olim from North America and the UK. We now bring you a display, from photos submitted by Nefesh B’Nefesh Olim, reflecting Aliyah and life in Israel.

Save the Date! Nefesh B’Nefesh is coming to New York and New Jersey for the annual Mega Event Sunday, December 3rd. Whether you’re making Aliyah, considering Aliyah or just want to know what it is- the NBN Mega Event will answer all your questions.
