or going up to the land of Israel.

And these immigrants are joining thousands

of other Israelis who havemade Aliyah in the 70 years

since Israel became a modern nation.

Both outgoing Jewish AgencyChairman, Natan Sharansky,

and the new Chairman, Isaac Herzog,

were on hand to greet them.

They're, like, 200 of thesebrand new soon to be Israelis

are from France and manyof them are children.

France is just one of anumber of countries in Europe

and throughout the globe

where the danger to Jews is growing.

- It's very concerning what'shappening in Western Europe.

Also in other parts of the world

where you can see anti-Semitismraising its ugly head

whether it's in the form of anti-Semitism

or anti-Israel sentimentswhich are basically

just masking anti-Semitism.

- [Narrator] Mor says TheJewish Agency has kept a promise

since Israel became a nation 70 years ago.

who is in danger, who is full of hope,

who wants to come to Israelbut the doors are closed.

anti-Jewish violence wasa factor in his move.

- [Thierry] It's more and more true.

Also, the politic try toprotect, but it's difficult.

She says anti-semitismdidn't drive her out.

It was more of a calling.

and my God on my land.

It was an obligation for me.

(woman cheering)

- Tom Hess, director ofthe All Nations Convocation

in Jerusalem, says theseveral hundred references

to Aliyah in the Bible, make it clear

it's something close to God's heart.

- [Tom] It says in thescriptures that God will bring

his people back from thenorth, the south, the east,

and the west.

Most of the Jews have come from the north,

and the south, and the east,

but 90% of the Jews outside of Israel

today are in the west.

So we know there's gonnabe a massive Aliyah

not only continuing from the north,

but from the west, God will bring back

millions and millions of Jews.
