800px-Flickr_-_Israel_Defense_Forces_-_Sergeant_First_Class_Gilad_Shalit_wearing_IDF_uniformThere were two surprises on Nefesh b’ Nefesh’s charter aliyah flight that arrived Tuesday morning in Ben Gurion airport.

The flight is carried 231 North American immigrants who became Olim, including a record number of 106 children.

What were the two surprises?  The first surprise is that these olim were accompanied to Israel by Gilad Schalit.  The second surprise was that Yitzchok Adom, a Nefesh b’Nefesh oleh from last year who became a soldier, greeted all the olim in terminal One of Ben Gurion Airport.

Yiztchok Adom then proposed to his girlfriend Chain (חן) in front of all the new Olim.  The band then played “Kaitzad merakdim lifnei HaKallah.”

    Gilad Schalit should stay away from any and all media. Cowardly being captured, the way he was, without a fight is disgraceful to an Israeli soldier. I’m happy he is back but I never want to hear or see him again.
