NBN olim Chanukah 1Some young new olim who made aliyah to Israel from the U.S. this past summer with the help of Nefesh B’Nefesh, the Ministry of Aliyah and Immigrant Absorption, the Jewish Agency for Israel, and Keren Kayemet L’Israel celebrated Chanukah at a special Nefesh B’Nefesh gathering in Modi’in. At the event, these young olim, ages 3 to 10, tasted their first Israeli sufganiah (jelly doughnut), played for the first time with Israeli dreidels that represent the words “a great miracle happened here,” and enjoyed lots of chocolate gelt (coins).
