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.

Paperwork receiced and being processed

I received an e-mail from the Aliayh office, yesterday (Friday) afternoon, that I sent my paperwork for processing. This was a response to an e-mail asking for the status.

I have a tik aliyah (aliyah file) number. So, I guess I feel like something is happening. However the e-mail informed me that they will not actually process my paperwork until after the coming Jewish holidays as they are overwhelmed with applications for individuals making aliyah around the holidays. Even though I want things to progress rapidly I can't be unhappy that so many people are making aliyah that they have to prioritize the processing.

So, I guess on this issue I won't be posting an update until October. But progress is progress.
