I have recently retired from my VP of Product position at an Israeli software company where for 8 years I wore hats ranging from software documentation to development, marketing and corporate GRC. I freelanced for a few years after making aliyah and can share those experiences with people considering that route, and my last position in the US was Senior Technical Writer in the Risk & Compliance department of a bank. I have been a webmaster since 1995 and have been the volunteer manager of Rabbi Nachman Kahana's site https://nachmankahana.com and Voleh, an organization that provides pro bono legal assistance to olim at https://voleh.org since 2009.

In Israel my husband, son and I have lived in Ma'ale Adumim (2008-2009), Ra'anana (2009 - 2010), Ma'ale Adumim (2010 - 2018) and Be'er Sheva (since 2018), so we have experience with moving companies, transferring utilities, and all that's involved in getting settled into a new community. Our son is currently (2020) serving in the Israeli Air Force and so I have some experience to share in this realm as well.

In the beginning of our aliyah adventure we only had email groups to utilize for information gathering and support, today there are many wonderful Facebook and other social media groups available to new olim, as well as organizations that are dedicated to helping olim have a softer landing than the pioneers who came decades ago.

I wish everyone a successful aliyah!
