Efrat, Aliyah 2014

mentor program


I grew up in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC and lived a secular Jewish life until my 30's. I married my wife Helaine and together we became religious, and eventually along with our two boys found our way home. We made Aliyah in 2014 from Baltimore, MD in the middle of the latest Gaza war. We originally landed in Alon Shvut, and after 2 years bought an apartment in the Zayit neighborhood of Efrat.

We have had an amazing Aliyah. Our boys who were 13 and 11 when we arrived, have flourished here. My wife currently runs her own Gan (pre-school) and I run a software development company out of my apartment in Efrat.

I am the founder of this site and hope that everyone finds it helpful in the process of Aliyah, and I thank all of the Israeli's who have come in to offer their help.
