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.

Confirmed! Arriving July 7th - טו בתמוז

Well I haven't posted from the office before, but today was a little more exciting and I didn't want to wait until I got home.

I just received my confirmation e-mail from Nefesh B'Nefesh. I will be on the flight leaving from JFK in New York on July 6th, arriving in Israel on July 7th!

My kids will be driving me to New York and I am hoping to make a stop in Philadelphia for a short drop in at the FJMC International Convention and get to say quick hello, good-bye and come visit to a bunch of my Men's Club friends from all over North America.

I'll write more on my excitement later, but had to post something while the information was fresh.

Awesome!! And driving to the airport is definitely the way to go. You will easily spot the other olim... you know, the people who arrive early to board the flight with their 24 pieces of luggage for family of 8...

I was lucky to be allowed to travel, twice, on NBN flights as a journalist/blogger. NBN takes good care of you.

If you'd like to come to Shiloh, please let me know.
