Ah-ha Moments of Immigrant Parents

On a recent Saturday night, I was preparing my three-year- old son’s sandwich for the next morning for school – yes, in Israel there is school and work on Sundays. I opened my freezer and found I was out of sliced bread and only had pita. I nervously explained to my picky child that we are out of the normal bread, would he be willing to take pita instead? His response was, “Yes! Then I will be like everybody else!”

Jerusalem 31 Year Old Commutes To The Merkaz

8:00 a.m. - It’s Shabbat tonight and we are going out for both meals over Shabbat so we need to go shopping. We go to the bakery to get challah for our Friday night meal and pay 20 shekels for two challot. Additionally, we head over to a local grocery store to buy stuff that we need for the week and items for the salad we will be making for Shabbat lunch. I also buy some chicken wings that I will be making Saturday night for the big college football game that luckily I get to watch because it starts at 7:00 pm Israel time.

An Olah’s IVF Experience in Israel

I made Aliyah a week after my wedding and joined my husband, a lone soldier who made the move several years before. We met at a wedding in Israel a year earlier and maintained a long-distance relationship for the year leading up to our wedding. It was scary and exciting. I could not have predicted then how vital living in Israel would be for us and for our future family.
