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.

Once you submit your application online with Nefesh B'Nefesh you get the automated e-mail that also tells you you'll hear from them in the next week. Since I submitted my application after shabbat began in Israel I knew I'd not hear anything for at least a day and a half. Well today I got my real confirmation e-mail telling me if everything was in order and if not what they needed. To top it off a couple hours later I received a phone call to make sure I got the e-mail and make sure I understood what I was missing. We'll I was close... they still don't have my 3 passport pictures and need an original document from from my CPA. Other than that everything was in order. I am happy to say I mailed the passport pictures on Friday and have asked the CPA to send the original. So, I am really close to having everything in order... They are really smart in that there is a special web portal for applicants to check the status of our applications, otherwise I bet we'd be e-mailing or calling a lot more often. The dream is getting closer.
