Vashavu Banim L’gvulam!
Waking up at 5:15 was well worth the incredible experience we had in greeting the Olim Chadashim. The energy and happiness was palpable and we greeted the olim with signs, songs, and warm embraces. Many of us had personal connections to the olim making aliya on this flight, and felt extra excited to participate in this momentous occasion. We danced and sang one of our very own advisors from GIVE 12- Raimi Tuchinsky into her new home in Israel.
We had an inspiring and uplifting morning followed by chesed, and a delicious dinner at Papagaios. May we all live the words of Yermiyahu and: V’shavu Banim L’Gvulam.
