Nefesh B’Nefesh Hosts 5 Thanksgiving Dinners Across Israel

Jerusalem, November 23, 2018 – Hundreds of Olim gathered in different parts of Israel last night for traditional Thanksgiving dinners, hosted by Nefesh B’Nefesh.

Events were held at the NBN Tel Aviv Hub, Mahane Yehuda Market in Jerusalem, as well as Haifa and Beer Sheva as part of the KKL – NBN Go Beyond joint initiative. Olim enjoyed traditional Thanksgiving turkey and seasonal side dishes in order to evoke a taste of this nostalgic holiday.

The Thanksgiving events are an example of how Nefesh B’Nefesh strives to assist new immigrants acclimate, integrate and thrive in Israel through its post-Aliyah programming.

“Through our Thanksgiving programming, we are helping Anglos in Israel celebrate this family-oriented holiday in a warm setting with their newfound family of friends and fellow Olim,” said Rabbi Yehoshua Fass, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Nefesh B’Nefesh. “This is a time for Olim to reflect and feel thankful for their new lives in Israel and appreciate the new lives and traditions they have created here.”
