OK. So all us bloggers gave our 12 reasons to make Aliyah. And so far, everyone (except BenBayit) agrees with my reason #12, and I also happened to notice some overlap of other people's lists with mine (I guess they peeked before they wrote theirs – you know who you are).
That's very nice and all, but what is your next step to making Aliyah?
Yeah, yeah, I know, you have your 5 year plan you planned 6 years ago.
Well - how about the next best thing to a NBN pilot trip?
In just a week, on June 17, 18, and 19 (that's a Sunday, Monday and Tuesday for those of you without a calendar in front of you) there is going to be a huge Israeli housing fair in New York and New Jersey.
There will be booths there from contractors, builders, agents, mortgage bankers, and other “interested parties”.
I even know someone who bought their home in Israel from going to the show.
What’s also interesting is that it isn’t just Jerusalem.
Reps are usually there for projects and homes in Modiin, Beit Shemesh, Maaleh Adumim, and other parts of the country.
And usually there is at least one bank there that can answer questions about getting mortgages in Israel and perhaps even get you started on the process.
So, if my list had even the slightest impact on you, then click on this link and go to the show. Tell them JoeSettler sent you (on the other hand, maybe don’t mention JoeSettler – but go to the show anyway).
