Israel's army is getting a planeload of reinforcements from North America.

A group of 104 young men and women who will be joining the Israel Defense Forces in the coming months were aboard a 747 El Al charter flight to Israel that departed Monday from New York, a record for a single flight. The plane, sponsored by Nefesh B'Nefesh,  the Jewish Agency and Friends of the IDF, is carrying a total of 360 North Americans who are moving to Israel.
