ISRAEL - 1,000 Immigrants in One Month

Arno Froese

Nefesh B’Nefesh (NBN), the leading organization that facilitates Aliyah from within North America, in cooperation with the Ministry of Aliyah and Integration, The Jewish Agency for Israel, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael (KKL) and JNF-USA, is celebrating a record-breaking summer, with 1,000 Olim making aliyah in August 2021 alone, surpassing any other month in the organization’s history.

“The summer is always the highlight of our year at Nefesh B’Nefesh, with the peak in Aliyah culminating during these months. Despite the many challenges surrounding the pandemic, the resilience of our olim and dedication from our staff and partners, have enabled us to celebrate our largest Aliyah month ever,” said Rabbi Yehoshua Fass, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Nefesh B’Nefesh.

“We will continue accompanying the olim and doing everything in our capacity to provide holistic support to the new olim in order for them to feel at home in Israel from the moment they arrive, in cooperation with the Aliyah organizations, among them The Jewish Agency and Nefesh B’Nefesh.”

Ronnie Vinnikov, CDO of Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael said, “KKL is celebrating its 120th anniversary and has been working for decades to promote immigration. Even in this challenging period of the Corona crisis, we see the importance of the new immigrants who empower the State of Israel and contribute greatly to the strengthening of the Galilee, the Negev and Jerusalem.”, 31 August 2021

Arno's Commentary

The KKL (Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael) was founded in 1902 at the world’s first Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland. The purpose: to buy and develop land in Ottoman Palestine, and later in British Mandate Palestine. The Jewish National Fund (JNF) is a non-profit organization that owned 13% of the total land of Israel by 2007. The success is well-documented. One report states that the JNF planted over 260 million trees throughout the land of Israel. 

Now, something new is happening. It’s not the land, but the people. This follows the prophecy of Ezekiel 36:10: “And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded.”

Later in our Bible, we read the prophet Zechariah confirming this move: “And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness” (Zechariah 8:8).
