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.

The Vineyard

My cousins have started working on a new venture. They are planting a vineyard to grow grapes to be eventually used in the making of wine. They have just really got started and the plants are barely in the ground. I got to join them on Friday morning for a few hours of labor in the fields... I only put stakes in the ground to tie the plants to and I was tired. I have a lot more respect for the chalutzim that built the country from nothing and had to build the infrastructure and the buildings too!

Hey Matt,

Seems like you are having some really cool adventures:) I am really enjoying reading your blog and hope to have enough money to make my first trip to Israel next summer. When you have some time, can you email me and tell me how you knew you wanted to make aliyah?

Take care,
