New York, NY - April 12, 2011
- Two years ago, Naftali Lubin and Nina Samstein met on an EL AL aircraft when they were both travelling as part of a Hillel volunteer program called "Alternative Break in Israel." After falling in love in Israel, and continuing their relationship at home, Naftali decided to pop the question. Since EL AL was the unofficial matchmaker that brought this couple together, Naftali wanted the airline to be a part of their engagement. EL AL and Hillel were thrilled to be part of this special moment.
After some thought-provoking, covert activities with EL AL, the plan to surprise Nina was finalized. Naftali would propose in the EL AL First Class Lounge at JFK Airport where a bottle of champagne, a "Mazal Tov" cake, hors d'oeuvres and balloons were ready and waiting for the couple.
The wedding is planned for later this year and a honeymoon in Israel could be another "dream come true."
