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.

Not that I needed to be inspired, but a little inspiration felt good

This past summer, Nefesh B'Nefesh started webcasting the arrival ceremonies from Israel so that friends and families (and anyone else that was interested) could watch the live feed from the airport in Israel of the arrival of the plane, the excitement, the music, the dignitaries (Prime ministers (current, former and future), Ministers, MKs, etc) making speeches and such. I fell into the category of anyone else that was interested. These webcasts started at midnight and would last for about two hours. I watched with awe and even a little jealousy as these arrivals were not mine, but a glimpse into the future and what I could expect. The Nefesh B'Nefesh charter flights have been primarily in the summer, one is going in December, but last night I was looking for something (nothing specific) on the web and was checking the NBN website to see if there was anything new. Looking at the links I saw the link for NBN Videos and remembered the great scenes, sounds and feelings I had when watching live. I decided to watch a little... A little turned in to over an hour last night and again another hour or so this morning. Even recorded and even having seen them before I was inspired and it felt GREAT!
