Gene, darling, were you wearing those sunglasses to hide the tears?

Once there, it is home forever

I visited in 1999. I had been working for Hospice and realized I should not put off something I desired so much. It has been home ever since. I felt close to Hashem, in shul, in Safed, Masada, Jerualem at sundown. It was the ultimate "falling in love." I would live there if I could find a way.

Geen Simmons getting award in Haifa

For all Jews, everywhere, Israel will always be home. If not physically, at least in our hearts. There is a very deep yearning to be there.

I Miss the Home of My Heart

I returned from two months in Israael yesterday. As I watched the video with scenes of Israel, my eyes filled with tears. Israel is the home of my heart, and, finally realizing this after several visits, I've decided to make aliyah. Israel will then be the home of my heart, my body and my soul.
