Location Ramat Beit Shemesh, west of Yerushalayim; southeast of Tel Aviv, Israel
Introduction Made aliyah in July 2006 with my husband, leaving four children and three grandchildren in the states (as of February 2009 there are five grandchildren). I left my job at Aish HaTorah (after ten years) and my mah jongg partners (after nine years). After a year in Ramat Beit Shemesh we moved to Kochav Yaakov where we enjoyed our new lives as settlers for two years. Just before Pesach 2009, we returned to Ramat Beit Shemesh because there are more amenities for English speakers - and more mahj players!
Interests Mah Jongg, hearing great speakers, feasting my eyes on the beauty of Israel, working for a tzedaka organization that provides services for impoverished families, spending time with friends
