I am on a journey, to make Aliyah, and want to share my journey with my family, friends and anyone that is interested. I made the decision to make Aliyah in December 2002 and now I am actually doing it. This blog will chronicle my story and adventures leading up to getting on the plane and then the continuing story of the beginning of my new life in Israel and what I experience once there.

The Blog Starting point... Sent in Paperwork

Even though I made the descision 6 years ago to make aliyah, I decided to wait until my kids graduated before making this change. I am less than a year away now and thus am able to open my tik aliyah (aliyah file) with the shaliach (representative for the State of Israel). I had my interview about two weeks ago and have been gathering the needed paperwork. I finished my gathering yesterday, went by the bank for a cashiers check and sent in the package today. It really felt like I am starting the actual process in sending something to someone. So, I begin my journey... I have been in contact with Nefesh b'Nefesh since 2002 and will be utilizing their services and traveling with them next July. They haven't announced the flight schedule for 2009 yet, so I don't know the exact date yet.
