Still Making Aliyah…

without comments

We have been telling friends and family all along that we are planning on making aliyah at the end of December, 2005. However, as that day is now less than four months away, my wife and I have been saying to ourselves: “Shouldn’t we be doing something right now for planning aliyah?”

So, over the past month we have been involved in:

  • Filling out our Nefesh B’Nefesh application
  • Trying to get a birth certificate and passport for Moshe
  • Making an appointment with the Jewish Agency so that they can certify that I am indeed Jewish (I have a letter from my rabbi to prove it!)
  • Making an appointment to go see the store in the Lower East Side that sells 220 Voltage appliances
  • Had an evaluation done by a shipping company for how much it will cost to get out posessions over to the Holy Land
  • (Gulp! Looks like we are really going to do this!)
  • Telling my employer that I will be leaving the company at the end of the year, and trying to work out some way that I can still work for them from abroad

More details to come as the saga unfolds…
