Thank you to everyone for sharing this journey with us.  There was no way for us to know how many of you would be touched by this series and surprisingly how meaningful and helpful your comments have been.  To all of you who have taken the time to express your feelings, in writing through comments, tweets and blog posts  – you must know, and I can’t say it enough times – what strength it has given us as a family.  This one experience has drawn us all (and I mean you, my Joy of Kosher/Aliyah Family) closer and for that I will be forever grateful.  I will do my utmost to continue to share our experiences here on JoyofKosher.com through blog posts, recipes and videos so that we may all live the dream together.  While this is the finale episode, I promise you this is not the end… it is only the beginning.

With love and best wishes for a Great Shabbos and a Gmar Chasima Tova
Jamie and Family


 

Joy of Aliyah – The Israel Lift Teaser

Mazel Tov! Our lift has arrived. Hubby and I had a bet going… how much of our furniture would end up on the curb in Israel due to lack of space. Well I will have you know we both lost! So far we have found a home, albeit a cozy home, for just about everything save for one dresser. It’s still moving around looking for a permanent spot.

There were something like 400+ items that were unloaded from our 40ft lift, in the span of about 4 1/2 hours. You gotta check out the video to see how one of the movers balances a box on his neck – he apparently has been doing this a looong time my friends.


 

Joy of Aliyah – Welcome to Israel Episode

This episode takes a look at our first 2 weeks in Israel.  We leave the airport, fried and crying (well at least me and my two youngest kiddies were cranky) and fall asleep on the 45 minute cab ride to our new home, Ramat Beit Shemesh.  As we pull up to our house for the first time I notice the beautiful tree lined street and the u-shaped complex of cottages around a parking lot-courtyard that will be my new address.

My sister-in law Devorah and her husband Rabbi Maslin and 6 kids are there to greet us (my other brother-in-law Greg and sister-in-law Chanie and their 6 gorgeous kids met us at the airport!).  Devorah was so considerate and set up a table with bagels (where’s the pita?!), cream cheese and fresh cut up veggies.  We all downed it, again while I was crying.  I was just so emotional, and overall completely drained.

I was going to start by saying I have no words to describe this experience. But that’s no true… I have tons of words. Inspiring, emotional, awesome, heart-wrenching, exciting, overwhelming, tiring, stressful, scary, incredible. I could go on and on listing the words and emotions we are now going through as a family – but to write an eloquent post on exactly what we are experiencing, in coherent sentences, is beyond me right now.

The last week and a half has felt like one long day with lots of little naps. It’s so wonderful that with the help of Nefesh B’Nefesh we now have this webisode to share with you. I don’t have to worry about writing, I can just show you. Watch our last 24 hours, the Aliyah flight and our arrival along with 351 new olim in Israel, now.

This is it. We have been waiting for this day for a lifetime. The one way ticket to Israel for my entire family and 350 additional olim chadashim courtesy of Nefesh B’Nefesh and the Jewish Agencey for Israel and the Israeli government.

We are feverishly working on the next episode which premieres next Wednesday Aug 22nd at 7pm. And will include our last 24 hours in the US, our airport goodbyes, the flight and landing in Israel.


 

Joy of Aliyah – The Goodbye BBQ

There are so many people to see and there is so little time.  So together with Nefesh B’Nefesh we hosted a Goodbye “Catch the Wave” BBQ to gather all our loved ones together in one place on one day.   Of course it was great to see family who traveled from far and dear friends from the neighborhood and even kosher blogger buddies and personalities came out to say farewell.  I was so touched and  in typical Jamie fashion I almost cried when I spoke.  Not sure exactly what I managed to say but the message was and remains “look at us, if we can do this you can too!”
