Aliyah Tips Continued

Last week, we began a series of posts on Aliyah tips. I have a number of great tips and yes, we will cover what keeps Yidden committed to being here even when life get's difficult. Before we get to those, our next tip from a few Olim is, ATTITUDE. 

You need to come with a positive attitude and a dedication to stay here no matter what. Some spoke of making a complete break so that you have no option to return. Keep focused on being here and look for the positive no matter what happens. 

It might sound like a simple tip, but it is one that most who are here are tested with from time to time or often. If you are committed to staying in the land where we belong, you can start right now by looking for the good in every situation and looking for the good in Eretz Yisrael. Remember, as we posted in the previous post, we might fight and argue but Am Yisrael is one big family. So if someone upsets you, remember they might have a tough outer skin, but inside, Israelis have a heart of gold. Mostly the dedication to each other is very inspiring to witness and to be a part of. 

So when someone tells you, you can't make it in Israel, think Positive and remember, as one Olah reminded us, except for a few who remained throughout the years, most of us are all Olim in it together. Whether it is this generation or one's parents or grandparents, somewhere is an Oleh or Olah who gave up their other life to come and help to settle the land. Many have succeeded to remain here for decades. If those of us here can do it, so can you.

If you need some guidance in being here in Israel, do be in touch with Chessed Ve'Emet. We'd love to hear from you and discuss which of our services can assist you in your path to be successful in the land where we belong.
