What About ALL Of Us?!

After spending the last couple of hours watching the latest Nefesh B'Nefesh flight (and occasionally commenting back and forth with Erachet, who relived Camp Moshava watching the goings-on), which included the best friends and neighbors of my sister and brother-in-law, I was a bit overwhelmed and posted at the Muqata:
We just spent the last two hours watching [also known as crying while watching] the latest NBN flight arrive, including my sister and brother-in-law's best friends and neighbors from Baltimore. Apparently my nieces cried the whole Sunday night... but they'll be using their webcam to stay in touch all the time.

A former co-worker of mine is going next month (maybe Jameel will help him pack!), too. Actually, our whole lives, close family and friends have been taking that leap and making Aliyah... if you're from Cleveland, you know what I'm talking about. Hopefully soon my sister's family will be able to fulfill their dreams and make Aliyah.

...and then us, too. Hopefully soon...
Wherever I am, my HEART turns towards Eretz Yisrael

We miss it sooo much.


  1. I didn't even watch the video but I am crying from reading your post. One day soon...

  2. Hope to see you there. Maybe once everyone gets settled in Israel, we can re-establish the youth hostel for wayward college students?

  3. I can't wait to go to Israel again! I will hopefully be doing a Birthright trip this December - can't get it out of my mind!!!
