It's human nature to put things off.  Thank G-d, we're not in charge of things. G-d created us a world with a clock, always ticking.  It never needs winding up or new batteries.  It began before man was created.  We just hop on for our מאה עשרים me'ah esrim, one-hundred and twenty years.  Do we just want to fiddle?

I'm glad that my husband and I made aliyah young, just weeks after our wedding.  It would only have gotten harder if we had delayed it.  You may rightly complain that I toot my horn a bit too much.

And if you're already in Israel, maybe you're looking for something special?

Next Sunday, May 24, is Rosh Chodesh Sivan, and we'll be having our monthly Women's Prayers at Tel Shiloh.  G-d willing, we'll be there at 9:30am.
