Three planeloads of immigrants arrived in Israel on the same day from three different countries. The flights that arrived Tuesday from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom carried some 800 immigrants, which is being touted as a record number of immigrants from the West. The flights were sponsored by Nefesh B’Nefesh and the Jewish Agency for Israel.
