Nefesh B'Nefesh is at it again!
Here's the thought process.
Birthright (Taglit) is supposed to create a connection for unconnected Jews to Israel and the Jewish people. Statistics seem to indicate it's working (duh, of course its working, who can visit Israel and not be affected or feel connected).
So once birthright has primed the pump, NBN jumps in and helps the connected stay connected - or at least that's how it looks to me.
They've also extended it to Masa alumni. Masa is a Jewish Agency program that acts as the umbrella for people visiting Israel for the year to study, volunteer, or work (this also includes most of the major Yeshiva programs).
And what is NBN doing?
They're giving money away. Lots of it.
Besides the normal financial assistance packages NBN offer Olim. Nefesh B'Nefesh is offering "Enhanced Grants" to birthright and Masa alumni (that means even more money).
Some people get all the luck.
So if you are a birthright or Masa alumni and considering making Aliyah, then you should contact Nefesh B'Nefesh because these Enhanced Grants won't be around forever.
