Arutz Sheva spoke with Yehuda Gerlitz from Calgary, Canada, who arrived in Israel as part of one of the group flights that Nefesh B’Nefesh organizes throughout the year.

“We felt the calling to be in the land [of Israel],” he said, reflecting on his family’s decision to leave Canada for Israel.

“I read a book by an author named Jim Collins, who wrote a book called ‘Good to Great’, and he said that good is the enemy of best, and I think that this is the case here: This is the best place for us to be,” added Gerlitz.
