Finding Our Place in Eretz Yisroel

Various Perspectives and Experiences of English speakers Living in Eretz Yisroel Finding Our Place in Eretz Yisroel In 1996, while we were in our late thirties, we moved from Baltimore to Eretz Yisroel with our six children aged sixteen down to one and a half. Although many rabbonim do not recommend moving to Eretz Yisroel with children from ages eight [...]

Living in Eretz Yisroel

Living in Eretz Yisroel If you had told me fifteen years ago that in 2019 I’d be living with my husband and six children, bli ayin hara, in an old three-bedroom Yerushalami apartment with no car, I would have laughed in your face. Coming from suburban America with two to three-story houses, one car per driver in the family, and [...]

Paving the Way

Various Perspectives and Experiences of English speakers Living in Eretz Yisroel Paving the Way I am the youngest of eight siblings. We all grew up in England, and all of us ended up here in Eretz Yisroel for a few years of married life. That was the original plan—to be in this environment conducive to shteiging for a few of the formative [...]

Soul Connection

Various Perspectives and Experiences of Anglo-Chareidim Living in Eretz Yisroel Soul Connection When I came to learn at a yeshivah in Yerushalayim in 1982, it was only for a year. At that time, the Land was still quite foreign to me, as I was used to life back in Canada. I was just more comfortable living on the other side [...]

Great and Simple Environment

I grew up in L.A., studied in Waterbury after high school, and then came to learn in the Mir in Eretz Yisroel. I returned to America and learnt by Rav Asher Weiss in Monsey, NY. I met my wife that year and we settled there. She was finishing her college degree and I was happy learning in kollel. My wife [...]

From Lakewood to Beit Shemesh

We came to Eretz Yisroel in the summer of 2014 after living in Lakewood for almost seven years. Being “in-towners” originally from Monsey and Flatbush, moving to Eretz Yisroel wasn’t really the “in” thing to do, so why did we? We always had a soft spot for Eretz Yisroel, but, like most people, we didn’t think it was realistic for [...]

Here I Am!

By Tzvia Ehrlich-Klein, Yerushalayim. It’s many years since little ol’ regular me, a third-generation American, first came to Israel. As with so many turning points in life, I didn’t realize that it was one. I just came for one year — a Junior Year Abroad study program at Hebrew University. But something happened as my suitcases were thrown off the [...]

Where Has Our Love Gone?

By Rabbi Avrohom Neuberger After the Holocaust, many survivors were overwrought with feelings of confusion, loneliness, and anger — anger at the Nazis, anger at the com- placent world, and even anger at the Almighty. Some were disillusioned to the point of losing their faith. Al tadin es chaveircha ad shetagia l’mkomo. Do not judge your fellow unless you are in [...]

IS THIS REALLY GALUS?

If we don’t mourn the destruction, are we truly in galus? By Rabbi Avrohom Neuberger You know how you occasionally hear or read something and wonder, “Wow, that’s so obvious. How did I miss it?” I just had one of those moments, and I am asking myself that very question: How did I miss it? Chareidi media has been all over [...]

Why Live in Israel?

By Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein A few weeks ago, Rabbi Michael Broyde sent me an article he had written regarding his reaction to a question posed to him during his sabbatical in Israel: “So what do I think of Israel so far?” In good Jewish style, he responded to the question with a question, preceded by a story.
