15 Feb PICTURES: Operation Menashe 2017: Arrival in Israel
They’re here! The first group of 30 immigrants from India as part of Operation Menashe 2017 have landed at Ben-Gurion Airport.
Shavei Israel’s director of marketing and new media Laura Ben-David was there and shot some amazing photos, as the group makes their way through passport control and eventually is tearfully reunited with family members who are already in Israel.
Get ready to be overwhelmed by emotion!
Here are a few photos of the Fanai family. That’s Shavei Israel Chairman Michael Freund with little Yoav Fanai.
A few Bnei Menashe found time to pray as they waited for their immigration papers to be processed.
While the littlest ones did what littles ones will do: play.
