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.

Last Full Day in the USA

The day started in Philadelphia at the FJMC (Men's Club) Convention where I got to join my friends for morning services and breakfast. We then drove to NYC to our hotel, parked the car and headed into the city. The kids wanted to shop in Chinatown, so that was our first stop. We then went to Ground Zero. I hadn't made it there before and since 9/11 had such an impact on me I felt I needed to visit there before leaving the country. So I snapped a pic to remember the visit by. We then headed to visit a friend and we had desert sitting in a park near his house. Sitting outside in July is such a weird concept coming from SC where is way too hot to even think about doing something like that.

We are back in the hotel room and I wanted to update facebook and add this entry to the blog. I will add video from Philly when I get situated in Israel, so for now the pic will have to do...

In the morning we'll find a bagel shop and have breakfast and then head to the airport. See you all from the "other side".
