600 New Israelis Make Aliyah

( Hundreds of new immigrants arrived in Israel on Sunday from the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). The Jewish Agency plans to bring hundreds more in the course of this week, in the days leading up to the Rosh Hashanah holiday.

A total of approximately 600 new immigrants from the CIS are expected to arrive between Sunday morning and the beginning of the Jewish new year on Friday evening.

The new immigrants will be greeted by ministers, members of Knesset, Jewish Agency officials, and other public figures. Many will continue on to participate in Jewish Agency affiliated programs, including kibbutz (cooperative community) absorption programs and “Selah,” an Aliyah (immigration) track aimed at students arriving in Israel without their parents.
