Connections

At times, people can be somewhat mystified why Jews have such an attachment to Israel. It is not something quantitative. It cannot be measured. It is something in the soul. Pictures of Israel drew me to what I had always known: I belong there to live fully as a Jew. And I have not given up on the dream of moving to the little town with its vineyards nestled on the shore by the Mediterranean Sea.

And when I read posts like this one, the hope of moving there becomes even more palpable.

And another connection.

SOUnds like you want to live in Zicron Yaakov. SO what are you waiting for? :-)

Don't be like us and wait so long that you kick yourself for years about all the missed living you could have already been doing here.

Call Nefesh B'Nefesh and start the process. Now!

treppenwitz,

Yes!! I went to a web-site which showed different places to live. And Zicron Yaakov looks so beautiful and I remembered your post about it.

The only thing really holding me back is to make sure my son is settled. He needs to go to college!

I will be contacting Nefesh B'Nefesh soon.
