Alissa Altman

Alissa Altman made Aliyah July 2008 from Vancouver, BC, Canada with her film industry husband (who is looking for work!) and their dog (who is not). Trained as an opera singer, she is now focusing her attentions on a new career in her new home country doing voiceover work and narration, although ulpan is the first priority! An anonymous blogger for many years, she has most recently been blogging about their aliyah experiences at altmanaliyah.blogspot.com
