“Blessed are those whose strength is in you, in whose heart are the highways to Zion.” (Psalm 84:5)

Rockets can’t keep new immigrants away from Israel.
Apparently undaunted by Gaza operation, new immigrants from United States , France en even Alaska begin new lives in a country under fire.
Divine intervention? 
Several Alaskans are not letting the war stop them from making Aliyah – and

they don’t quite know why. One said: “People ask me, ‘Why are you going?’  I said: “I have no idea. It’s just where I’m supposed to be.”
More than 1,000 new immigrants from around the world have arrived in (in the past 16 days) Israel during Operation Protective Edge.
Not a single one of these new immigrants canceled or postponed his or her arrival.

430 immigrants came from France, mostly families, including 195 children and 18 babies.
228 new immigrants from the United States and Canada arrived at Tel Aviv’s Ben-Gurion Airport Tuesday morning, becoming Israel’s newest citizens.

Among the immigrants was a soon-to-be-bride 23 year, from Teaneck, New Jersey. Wedding dress in her hand, Ilana arrived just one month before her wedding. During an interview with Israeli media, Ilana said that her fiancé, Akiva, is an officer in the paratrooper corps who is currently on assignment in Gaza. She has not heard from him since the fighting began.

It is not an easy decision to immigrate to Israel, and even more so in times like these. But it is a very brave decision. The continuation of mass immigration of families and children to Israel, especially in times of crisis, strengthens the whole country and is a clear message that Israel is the one and only home of the Jewish People.                                                                                                                                                               “Welcome Home.”
