Home...an image, a place, something to love, and sometimes you have to travel to get there. But once you've arrived, that feeling is like no other. Nefesh B'Nefesh is an organization that is a leader in educating and inspiring the Jews of the Diaspora as to the centrality of the Jewish State to the Jewish people and its desirability as a Jewish home. Their core mission: removing the financial, professional and logistical obstacles that prevent many individuals from actualizing their dreams of making Israel home.
Just last Tuesday, July 22, 2008, Ynet news reported the arrival of 88-year-old Frances Greenberg into the welcoming shelter of the land of Israel with the help of Nefesh B'Nefesh. Amazingly, Mrs. Greenberg, the only survivor in her entire family of the Holocaust, attempted to enter the land of Israel over 60 years ago on the ship Exodus, only to be denied entry - and was sent back to Germany in 1947. â€œItâ€™s time to fulfill the dream of my youth,â€ she said to Nefesh Bâ€™Nefesh staff. â€œAfter 60 years, I am finally coming to Israel to stay!â€
This July met another major Nefesh B'Nefesh milestone - the arrival of the 15,000th emigrant.
'Israel to me is the safest place in the world' - That approach has been the dominant attitude guiding the personalized programs for individuals and families who link into the Nefesh B'Nefesh aliya organization on their way home to Israel.
