It's just before 8:30 a.m., and the sound of a shofar blasts through the bustle on the tarmac of Ben Gurion Airport. In front of the cavernous hangar, which is set up for a party, a band plays "Heivenu Shalom Aleichem." Two rows of mostly female soldiers flank the walkway, and hundreds of people wave Israeli flags and hold signs saying things like, "Welcome Home."
