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.

I've been approved!

I got a call today from the shaliach. He called to let me know that he has gotten the approval from Israel approving my Aliyah. This means that all the paperwork I sent in was complete and now am ready to wait for the next step, my immigration visa. You can not apply for the visa until you are within 6 months of actually getting on the plane, so I can't even think about it until January. So, another bout of waiting, but one more thing off the list!

I also asked what if any issues I can expect because of the changes in processing after January 1st when Nefesh b'Nefesh takes on its new role in North American Aliyah. He basically said not to worry they will have a process for individuals that have already been approved. I'm glad I'm not going shortly after the changes, there will have to be a few new kinks that I'm sure will be worked out well before I'm ready to leave.
