Planeload of immigrants to land in Israel

A plane carrying 232 new immigrants from North America is set to arrive at Israel's Ben-Gurion Airport.

The El Al charter flight for the aliyah organization Nefesh B'Nefesh, which left New York on Tuesday, will land in Israel early Wednesday morning.

The new immigrants range in age from 5 months to 95 years, and include 26 young people who will enter the army upon their arrival.

Forty of the new immigrants are married and 60 are single, according to Nefesh B'Nefesh.

The organization said it will bring three chartered planes full of new immigrants to Israel this summer, and eight more flights will have blocks of seats set aside for new immigrants.

About 5,000 North American and British Jews are expected to make aliyah in 2010, a 20 percent increase over the previous year,according to Nefesh B'Nefesh.
