coming to the states made us religeous

I do see the point the you are making that living outside of Israel poses many dangers amongst them assimilation. However, in my case, and few other cases that I know of, we have become more observant. Had I stayed in Israel, I would have followed the crowed gone to the army and G-d knows where I would be. But living in America, I knew I was different and with only few wrong moves I was almost assimilated too. With Hashem's help, we became more religeous. I wish that on all the Jews in the diaspora and Israel see how empty and meaning less life is without Judaism.

Agree 100%

The consequences of what we say and do, our actions, or our thoughts will always affect us or someone else. It cant be avoided. I have always tried to think this way. And to act in accordance with what will happen when i do do something. It has always influenced me. And sometimes can be discouraging or a hindrance. But I continue to do it anyway, I know its what i should do.

Jews in the homeland

I didn't walk for 3 months... I boarded a plane 37 years ago, and of all my relatives still living abroad, I am the only one with 100% Jewish (frum) grandchildren.
