Berman and her family joined about 330 Jews from the United States and Canada who boarded a chartered El Al jet at John F. Kennedy International Airport bound for Tel Aviv.

About 2,040 North American Jews moved to Israel last year, and the numbers are up more than 20 percent this year, according to the Jewish Agency for Israel, a governmental agency that helps the immigration process.

Some Jews feel compelled to move to Israel to show their support for the country as it faces an increase in violence in its conflict with the Palestinians, according to agency officials.

Although, I also read many israelis were applying for European passports as a "backup plan" if something really bad happens there. :confused

Let's hope it doesn't come to that. We really don't need a mass immigration of Jews...
