I went because I knew a few of my friends who were going, and I wanted to connect and meet others in the social media world. But honestly I wanted to meet Jamie Geller from Joy of Kosher and Laura Ben-David author of Moving Up. It has always been a dream of mine to make Aliyah.
|Me and My friend Chana :)|
Jamie Geller is doing what I have always wanted to do. She is making Aliyah this summer via Nefesh B'Nefesh. One day, I too will take the trip to the Holy Land and live up north surrounded by fruit trees, hills, and unbelievable holiness. But for now, as circumstances have it, I will live vicariously through Jamie.
She is currently filming a documentary of her move called Joy of Aliyah. I am actually in this first video - well at least my back is! At 3:30 (You can even see her mouth the words Abbey as she hugs me) and then again at 3:53 when we were chatting.
Till next time,
