Going to America

With a heavy, heavy heart and the anticipation of assumptions, we're moving to the U.S. for a few years to be near my family. I'm not going to go into the details, but your thoughts and prayers are always welcome.

We're heading back after Passover, where we'll be stationed in Colorado with very frequent trips back and forth to Nebraska (the drive I've done 1 million times).

Stay tuned for more details. It's all happening very fast. This approach is like a bandaid, folks.

Note: We're coming back to Israel as soon as we possibly can. Most definitely by the time Ash hits school. Never fear. Eretz Yisrael hasn't spit us out for good. 


  1. BS"D
    I hope that it isn't something serious (illness in the family or something like that) which makes you relocate to the States for some years. Anyhow, I look forward to the continuing kvetching from you and I wish you good luck with the move!
    How is the kehilah in Colorado? (I don't know so much about out of Towns kehilos in the States, are them mixed or more Modern Orthodox?) I hope that you'll enjoy Life there anyway. Enough of my nosiness...

  2. Whatever your motivations, I just wish you all the best and hope that everything will be for the best! I am with you in my thoughts!

  3. Davka Colorado? I wish all of you luck, health and all good things.

  4. Good luck and well wishes for this next stage in your life.

  5. Sometimes you need your family, and sometimes they need you. Sending prayers for all of you to be happy, healthy, and safe from harm. May you rejoice in your time with your family, and may you rejoice again when you move back to Israel.

  6. We're going to split our time between Nebraska and Colorado, but my work and the Orthodox Jewish community I know is in Colorado.

  7. You need to do what is right for you. No need to explain anything to anyone. Hope the move goes smoothly! I can barely handle schlepping boxes across town, nevermind trying to wrangle an overseas move.
