Frances Kanenbrand first decided to make aliyah as a child in Sierpe, the Polish town where she was raised in a Zionist family. This week she finally became an olah chadasha, a new immigrant in Israel, eight decades after she started dreaming about life in the Promised Land, 61 years after she almost made the trip on the Exodus. In July 1947 she was among 4,515 passengers — mostly Holocaust survivors, as she was — on the converted steamer officially known as Exodus 1947.
