Five women from the ancient Chinese Jewish community of Kaifeng arrived in Israel Monday morning to start their new lives in the Jewish state.
Gao Yichen told Arutz Sheva Israel National News that it felt like “magic” to come to Israel.
Upon their arrival, Michael Freund, chairman of Shavei Israel, greeted the women at Ben Gurion Airport and brought them directly to the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
Here are three more photos of the women’s first day in Israel.
