Boulder 18 Year Old Makes Aliyah via Nefesh b’Nefesh

NEW YORK, July 18 – Zoe Brode, 18, of Boulder, was one of 218 North American immigrants to move to Israel Monday on a chartered Nefesh B’Nefesh flight, the organization responsible for removing or minimizing the financial, professional, logistical and social obstacles of immigration to Israel.

The charter flight took off from JFK Airport and is in partnership with Israel’s Ministry of Aliyah & Immigrant Absorption, The Jewish Agency for Israel, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael, and JNF-USA.

“I’m feeling really excited,” said Brode. “I just turned 18 so as soon as I got the opportunity to move to Israel and start my adult life there I took advantage of it and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Founded in 2002, Nefesh B’Nefesh in cooperation with the Israeli government and The Jewish Agency for Israel, is dedicated to revitalizing Aliyah from North America and the UK by removing or minimizing the financial, professional, logistical and social obstacles of Aliyah. The support and comprehensive social services provided by Nefesh B’Nefesh to its almost 50,000 newcomers has ensured that over 90% of its Olim have remained in Israel.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
