Welcome Home to the New Olim and photos

Hi Everyone!

Congratulations and welcome home to the 233 new olim that made aliyah to Israel from North America. The NBN aliyah charter flight arrived in Israel this morning, Tuesday - August 15.

I took 211 photos of this historic and exciting event and
I posted them online at:

I also uploaded the photos to Facebook for name tagging.
The Facebook album address is:

If you have a Facebook account and you are in the photos or you see someone you know, please feel free to name tag the photos.

Please share the photos with friends. Thank you!

May the aliyah from all over the world grow and bring more Jews back to their homeland, Eretz Yisrael.

Have a great day,
Jacob

Photos of Khutsot Hayotser in Jerusalem and Kaveret/Poogy!! Concert Videos

Hi Everyone!

Tuesday night, I visited the Jerusalem Khutsot Hayotser Arts and Crafts Festival in the Sultan's Pool outside the Old City.
I have not been to the festival in many years and it was very nice.
I posted photos online at:
www.history-of-israel.co.il/jerusalem/2017/jer528.htm

In addition to the arts and crafts, each night there is a musical event featuring well know performers. The brochure of the festival noted that "Dani, Gidi and Friends" would be performing on Tuesday night. I did not realize who they were. While walking around in the food court, I suddenly heard a very familiar song. We rushed over to the concert area and thousands of fans were having a great time.
On stage were the members of Kaveret - Poogy. It was great!
I took several videos and posted them at:
www.jr.co.il/videos/jerusalem-khutsot-hayotser-2017.htm

I found a very good location on a staircase platform and took the first video of "Lichvod Hakaitz".
While filming the second video of "Khalalit", security came and told us to get off the platform. I kept filming while walking down the staircase. Based on the lyrics at that point of the song, it looks like I was taking a ride on the "spaceship".

I walked out of the concert to the exhibition area and on the way back I decided to look for closer place to film. I found an area to the left of the stage which had a good view. The third video has three songs including the classic "Magapayim Shel Baruch" - Baruch's Boots.
Unfortunately, several people were talking right near my camera but it was the last song of the concert and I think you will like it nonetheless.
Enjoy and please share with friends.

Have a good night,
Jacob
