On October 15, 2012, I hopped a plane to Eretz Yisrael and made aliyah! In very late November/early December, I was matched the illustriously magnificent Mr. T. We had our first date on the first night of Chanukah, got engaged 10 days later, and were married on February 20, 2013 in a very small, amazing ceremony with our closest friends.
I now live in Neve Daniel, Israel, and am prepared to start a big ole' brood with Mr. T.
The purpose of this blog is to share my story, my struggles, my ups and my downs, and to connect with others about anything and everything Jewish and social media. Write me, talk to me, comment, and be well!
I visited Israel every year from 2008-2011 and made aliyah in 2012.
I've lived in two countries, 13 cities, and had 20 addresses.
I was once a Slam Poet.
I legally changed my name from Amanda Jo Edwards to Chaviva Jo Galatz to Chaviva Jo Gordon-Bennett.
I love Indian food, BBQ, and I'll do just about anything for coffee.
Mmm ... coffee.
