More than 1,100 North American Jews will immigrate to Israel this summer. Among them, some 150 New Yorkers will be feted Thursday at the UJA-Federation of New York by the Jewish Agency for Israel, which runs Israeli immigration and absorption. More than 1,800 North Americans will have immigrated to Israel from January to September of this year, a 20 percent increase compared to the same period in 2003, the agency said.
