“It felt like a rescue mission,” Ayelet Mintz said of her El Al flight to Tel Aviv, describing how “super-excited” she is to have arrived “home.”

Plant-based nutritionist has been planning her Aliyah – immigration to Israel – since the age of 16. When the coronavirus began to spread, she decided to get “home” as quickly as possible, fearing the doors to the country could shut.

“I’m here because I’m indigenous to this land,” she tells Arutz 7, speaking from quarantine in a Tel Aviv hotel.

Mintz is one of 18 North Americans who arrived on Aliyah this week through Nefesh b’Nefesh. Watch and hear her fascinating story!
