Lone soldiers, Bnot Sherut and other Olim gather in Jerusalem for an end-of-summer Nefesh B'Nefesh Block Party.

Nefesh B’Nefesh hosted a “Block Party” event at the Tachana Rishona (First Station) in Jerusalem this past Friday (Sept. 13, 2019) for Olim (new immigrants) in their 20s and 30s to relax and socialize as the summer ends. In addition to providing more than 1,000 young professionals with a space to socialize and network, the party provided free food and entertainment from popular Anglo vendors.

This event was facilitated in cooperation with Israel’s Ministry of Aliyah & Integration, The Jewish Agency for Israel, Keren Kayemeth Le’Israel (KKL) and Jewish National Fund (JNF)-USA.

“Following a successful family-oriented event just a few weeks ago, it is important to our organization that Olim of all ages and stages of life know that there is a place for them to connect with other like-minded individuals,” said Rabbi Yehoshua Fass, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Nefesh B’Nefesh.

“Nefesh B’Nefesh is dedicated to ensuring that each and every Oleh knows that they are an integral part of a larger support network that continues long after they step off the plane.”
