Post 7 – The Move to Israel

I flew to Israel on a flight chartered by Nefesh B’Nefesh and completely full of other American Jews making Aliyah. They were people just like me who had packed up their entire lives, left their entire history behind them, in order to begin a new life in a completely strange and foreign country. I got to the check-in area and instead of seeing a bunch of young adults who are about to make their way in Israel by themselves, far away from their loved ones, I see hordes of families, little children running around screaming, babies crying, women in long skirts and hair coverings and men gathered together in one location praying. It is not that I have anything against the religious; I just wasn’t expecting to be on a plane that could double as a daycare center.
