Aliyah is a life changing event that affects everyone in the family – and every person finds their own way to process the experience.

Moshe Somers is making Aliyah with his family this summer, and he’s understandably both excited and nervous. The precocious 8-year-old created a list of 20 things he plans on doing once he arrives in Israel, and his mother thought it was so cute she posted it to Facebook.
The items on the list are at once hilarious (#2), practical (#10), and moving (#16); but you’ll probably agree that #20 is one of the best ways to enhance your Aliyah experience.
