Calculated Risk

Received from A Simple Jew.
"When people are asked why they are unwilling to settle in Eretz Yisrael right now, they have all types of cheshbonot - calculations - as to why now is not the time. One says his chesbon is that his children need to finish school or college; another's chesbon is that he has to vest his pension, and so on. If we look in the Torah, though, we will see that before the Jewish people entered Eretz Yisrael, they first killed the King of Chesbon. Once the King of Chesbon is killed, the decision to move to Eretz Yisrael becomes easy."

(Rabbi Avraham Yitzhak HaKohen Kook )
While the decision might become easier, I won't fool you into thinking the implementation is simple.

It's a start just to dream of moving here.

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

Each time I deposit money in my bank account, the goal becomes closer, the dream more real. Small steps, one day at a time.

what they fail to tell you is that in order to live the dream, you give up a LOT of sleep! :D

we miss our family. and we don't have any money (which could get dual-play from the word cheshbon).

but we couldn't be happier...
