Nefesh B'Nefesh

Nefesh B'Nefesh came to Detroit last night, and gave a general overview on employment and benefits to olim. I wanted to sit in the back, Veev wanted to sit in the front, and since she walked in first and took a seat while I was talking to people, we ended up in the front.

Their wasn't a whole lot of new information presented, although it was worthwhile to attend the meeting and talk to the representatives that were in town. The whole process feels like it has slowed down at this point, and we are in a holding pattern.

Our application is just about completed, and we will be sending it in the beginning of January, and I imagine that at that point, things will start to pick up. We will have to get our house ready to sell, decide which of our things are making Aliyah with us, and work on getting ready to leave.

Have you guys finalized or narrowed down possible living locations? Also, if you want to bring any electronics or simply anything that plugs into a wall, double check on its Israel compatibility. For some stuff, it might just be more worth it to sell and buy again here. I had a brand new DVD players but didnt check the vaultage on it. Turns out it wouldn't work here, and now it's sitting under my bed back in the states. What a waste.

nbn's ace in the whole, aside for whatever $ they give you and easing the citizenship process, is that they build a network for olim.
beyond that, eh.

they claim great success, but since the organization is only about 4 years old and the test of aliya kicks in in year 5, they are largely unproven. lets see their performance rating after nbn $$ runs out.

dont know how big your beds are, but beware, as they may not fit in your new, small bedroom.

i must say, this is really terrible news.

when you mentions not sure which of your things you want to bring do you mean children, or is that just Sim?

Anon, how do you make it through life with such wretched pesimism? Are you in therapy for your depression? If not, I would get on that.
