It’s official

The big news is probably going to be anti-climactic if you regularly read this blog.

We returned our paperwork to Nefesh B Nefesh last night.

We are officially making aliyah (moving to Israel) this summer. We pretty much knew we would, but it took us a bit to commit. We were hoping we would hear from either Tel Aviv University or Ben Gurion University about the hubby’s grad school applications, but none such luck.

We are just going to go for it, pray for the best and make whatever adjustments are necessary to make it work.

Although it is kind of scary, it’s super exciting. We have gotten estimates on shipping and the rates looks really good. I am looking into retraining in technical writing for as early as August or after the chagim (holidays – specifically, the high holidays in September and October).

To my loyal Israeli readers, we are in need of an apartment in Modiin: preferably two bedrooms, 100 sq. meters if possible, near a bus line, and not that expensive. We are not picky about the neighborhood, but would gladly hear your suggestions. We are working on some leads, but would take any others you can offer.

When we get there, first felafel is on us. šŸ™‚

  2. Congratulations šŸ™‚ I’m sure we’ll meet once you get here. I actually moved to Israel right after high school (it was that or Lawton, Oklahoma) and on June 6th, that will be 22 years(!)

    Have you joined the Modiin email list? There are about 700 families on it now.
