Only In Israel

Good news, atlast

In this age of cynicism, at last, some good news.

NEW YORK - Tali Berman was born in America, but surrounded by her baby and belongings at Kennedy Airport, she said she was flying home — to Israel.

Berman and her family joined about 330 Jews from the United States and Canada who flew to Tel Aviv on Tuesday. Another chartered jet of about 300 people is leaving later this month.

About 2,040 North American Jews moved to Israel last year, and the numbers are up more than 20 percent this year, according to the Jewish Agency, an Israeli quasi-governmental agency that helps the immigration process.

It's good to know, that even in times of trouble, people would rather choose ideals than money. Make me proud. And one more thing: Welcome home.
