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.

Didn't post something from last week

It was about a year ago that I went to Atlanta to the Nefesh B'Nefesh seminar. They have announced the schedule for the rest of this year and they are returning to Atlanta in December. So, I signed up last week and forgot to share with the blog. The girls and I already had a trip planned and guess when the NBN meeting is? The same weekend. So, we will go to Atlanta a day earlier as the meeting is on Thursday evening. The girls would have had to miss school anyway on Friday, so we will leave Thursday after school and still get there in plenty of time. I suspect there will be prettier presentations, but I don't really expect to learn a lot more since I read everything they put out, but you never know. What I do hope to do, is meet people making Aliyah next year, maybe even the same flight that I will take. It would be nice to know someone or people beforehand. It would also be nice to meet people that maybe getting a lift as I plan to only have a few boxes and it would be nice to find someone relatively close to share with. If nothing else, I'll see and meet others that share my aliyah dream and share our stories...

Hi Matt! I have a friend who is coming on your same Nefesh b'Nefesh flight and I wanted to surprise him and meet him at the welcoming ceremony, but I know there is a whole security thing and you have to sign up in advance etc etc, but I can't seem to find out how to do that online. Could you maybe point me in the right direction? Thanks!
