Making Aliyah was the most difficult thing I have ever experienced. Deserting all I have and know for an idealistic value sounds great at first, but when the assimilation process starts – the pain settles in. That said, it was also my greatest growing experience. I have watched my friends and family go through the process as well. The strongest lesson I was left with is that when you have a loved one standing by you, with mutual support and goals.
I have devoted a part of my life to help the people who decide to make that courageous move. I decided to do what I can to help them find and build healthy, stable, supporting homes.
