      Hillel Levin, now from the holy town of Shilo, Israel, made Aliyah with his wife and son when he was 48. Originally from Skokie Illinois, found his back to Israel after 30 years. Like many of us who visited Israel at the sparkly age of 18, Hillel came and then headed back “home” to go to university. Now a fully vested Jew by the mere fact that he had “been to Israel,” which in some circles believe it or not, is a requirement to consider for a Shidduch (Match for a marriage proposal). Levin embarked on his “American Dream” as most young American do. Dreams of the house with the white picket fence, all American family complete with a car for every family member and dog in yard.

      G-D had other plans for Hillel... he got married, had twins, got divorced, got married again, had twins again and then 10 years later found himself making Aliyah!

      A Jew can catch Aliyah Fever when visits Israel, but it can remain dormant for years. Then one day it hits in full force, so much so, a marriage proposal will be made or broken by it!

      “When my wife and I were first engaged, she said that she would marry me only if I will make Aliyah! I said, “That’s funny, I was about to say the same to you!” Leven said with a laugh in his voice as he was joyfully reminiscing that very special day.

      As many older olim (immigrants) we get very creative in finding work. Levin worked at various jobs making peanuts. But, grateful to be living in Eretz HaKodesh (The Holy Land) wouldn’t trade his peanuts in Israel for diamonds anywhere else.

      True to Levins’ chesedik (kind) nature, Hashem (G-d) found him a job as a caregiver to two 89 year old gentlemen. That’s one way to feel young! Levin also spends some of his free time posting jobs for Jews on his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/313101908806188/?hc_location=stream

      Soon he will have a new website that Avraham volunteered to build him for all his Chesid projects… So stay tuned to ChesidIsrael.com, you might find a job there, or even something else that will make your life easier in Israel. That’s because Hillel cares and he is a giver!
