Five Times Aliyah

Five Times Aliyah Binyomin Biron, Kiryat Sefer, Modi’in Illit   I first came to Eretz Yisroel as a bochur. I had previously been involved in kiruv activities in Kiev. At the end of the school year, my brother-in-law who was living in Eretz Yisroel suggested that I continue on to yeshivah here, being that I was already so much closer [...]

Our Secret of Aliyah Success

Our Secret of Aliyah Success Eliezer Liberman’s story By: Gila Arnold   When we told our friends in our Lakewood community that we – I, my wife, and our six children, ages 10 to 1 -were making aliyah, reactions ranged from “Good for you! I’m so jealous!” to the (quite disconcerting) “Why?” (Huh? Why does a Jew want to live [...]

For Living Jews, Too!

For Living Jews, Too! Gedaliah O., Old City, Yerushalayim   My family immigrated to Eretz Yisroel when I was seven years old. We were a regular frum American balebatish family from Manhattan. My parents had lived here eighteen years earlier for a very short while, while volunteering on a kibbutz. A year before we moved, we came to Eretz Yisroel [...]

Inspiration and Purpose

Inspiration and Purpose Yehoshua Wiseman, Beis Yisroel, Yerushalayim   The blossoming of this Land of HaShem is a source of inspiration for me. It can be in the fields, by the trees, around the streams of water. In can be of the new Jewish homes being built, both the ones made of brick and mortar and the ones made of [...]

Frum Farm Dreams Can Come True

Frum Farm Dreams Can Come True Naomi Elbinger, Ramat Beit Shemesh   “Jewish girls don’t live on farms.” When Mum said this to me, there was an undertone of panic in her voice that I wasn’t used to hearing from my easy-going, upbeat mother. I knew she had nothing against farming, though it was a rather whimsical life-goal for a [...]

We All Get Along

We All Get Along Mindy Meyer, Rasko, Nof HaGalil   Between our engagement and chasuna, we scoured the entire Eretz Yisroel to find a place to live which would suit our preferences. I personally love traveling around to see different places here, and it’s very empowering to know that each daled amos is also a mitzvah. I wanted a yishuv, while my husband was [...]

Not Just A Spectator

Not Just A Spectator Yedidya B., Yerushalayim   B”H, I am happily raising my family in Yerushalayim, making a living running a business I started, and learning Torah as well. Honestly, though, all of this is not something I take for granted. I grew up in a regular American yeshivish home in a frum community in New Jersey. I am fortunate to have ended [...]

Growth In – And Acceptance Of – A Different Culture And System

Growth In – And Acceptance Of – A Different Culture And System Rachamim Schwab, Tel Tzion   Though I am now acclimated to the Israeli system, it was a gradual process. When I first got here as a bochur, I was basically living in a “little America.” I started out in a very American yeshivah (Derech); shiurim I attended were in English, and [...]
