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.

Arriving vs. Leaving

Tonight I was sending some e-mails and to a couple of the people I was updating them as to my progress towards aliyah. I am now counting in weeks instead of months. In conversation, people usually ask me "How long until you leave?" and thus I have answered "I will be leaving..." In sending my e-mails this evening though I chose to write "I will be arriving in Israel ..." It may be mincing words, but I don't feel as much that I am leaving, as I am arriving to something.
