Wed, Aug 14 2019, 10:00 AM

This morning, the 60th Nefesh B’Nefesh Aliyah Charter Flight landed in Ben Gurion Airport, including a significant amount of families who will be establishing their new homes in Beit Shemesh.


The new immigrants were welcomed in a festive ceremony at the airport, attended by the wife of Prime Minister Sarah Netanyahu; Beit Shemesh Mayor, Dr. Aliza Bloch; Minister of Immigration and Absorption, Yoav Galant; Chairman of the Jewish Agency, Isaac (Buzi) Herzog; and CEO of Nefesh B'Nefesh Rabbi Yehoshua Fass.


In the coming month, 170 families from the US and France are expected to arrive in Beit Shemesh. 150 families will be arriving from the United States through Nefesh B'Nefesh, and about 20 families from France through the Jewish Agency, totaling 500-550 new immigrants this summer.


Mayor Aliza Bloch said, “This is a significant event for the city of Beit Shemesh. Approximately 170 immigrant families, comprising 550 people from the United States and France, chose to live here, educate their children here, and become residents of Beit Shemesh. I welcome you to Beit Shemesh and the State of Israel. We will do everything to make Beit Shemesh your home.”


CEO of Nefesh B'Nefesh, Rabbi Yehoshua Fass, "We welcome our cooperation with the city of Beit Shemesh and their warm welcome to our new immigrants. There is no doubt that an easy and pleasant absorption is critical to the process. The help from Beit Shemesh during this adjustment period is significant and praiseworthy.”


Thursday morning at 11:30 am, a festive ceremony by the Beit Shemesh Municipality and Nefesh B’Nefesh will take place at the Beit Tefillah hall in 34 Nachal Refaim St. At the ceremony, the new immigrants will receive their ID cards and assistance for their absorption process.


The Beit Shemesh Municipality has spent a long time preparing for the new olim and their successful absorption. The Director of the Aliyah Department, Dr. Sami Ben Adi, has reported that most of the immigrants are planning to live in Ramat Beit Shemesh A and C, and that the municipality is ready to help each and every immigrant succeed in their new life. In addition, the Municipality is ready to receive the children into the local ganim and schools for the upcoming school year.
