APRIL 10-17, MID-FLORIDA TOUR!

DETAILS TO BE ANNOUNCED..

Israel our only Jewish Land. Why in the world would any Jew choose to remain outside of it? 

Here in Israel we are powerful and we are limitless. I have always felt that living here is in COLOR.

I never planned to live this way…a religious Jewish life, a “settler,” covering my hair, keeping Shabbat, living out here in the rocks and the dirt. But I’ve changed, and now, instead of green grass and a manicured lawn, I prefer rugged hills and goats. That’s what is beautiful to me now.

I am a Regular American Jew; I was raised in Delaware, a Conservative Jew. Went to Hebrew school and had a bat mitzvah with a big party. But other than that I wasn’t connected. I had never been to Israel, I didn’t go to Camp Ramah. I had other interests – ballet, music, cheerleading, boys. 

My transformation to a Jewish girl living in Israel, over the Green Line, all kind of happened by accident. 

Nothing in life just “happens.” Everything takes effort. Not necessarily a PLAN, but definitely EFFORT. If we just put one foot in front of the other, we move forward.

Many people who “talk” about making aliyah are still abroad….not moving forward. It can seem scary, the “unknown” but if you look at it as an adventure it is exciting.

Break the Mold...

So many people visit the same old places in Israel…..Jerusalem, the museums, the Dead Sea, Masada, important places of history and national interest. But how about going to see the REAL people and places of the Bible? In the Heartland of Israel where all the action occurred! That’s Yehuda and Shomron.

I have grown the last 20 years here living a Torah life; I have changed. We all change as we grow older. Part of that change has been because of the People and the Land.

On being an English speaker:  “Being a native English speaker here can be an advantage, especially in today’s Israeli job market. Israel is a hub for innovative technology, and English is the operational language! Don’t be fixated on your American career; be adaptable. Your career doesn’t have to define you; it’s not everything. Think about it. Do you walk into a cemetery and see anything on the grave stones about the deceased’s career?”
