Into my seventh year of aliyah – living in Israel – I finally, finally, finally have been able to start what every oleh needs to do the second they get here. I’ve started letting go.
Letting go of my pride. Letting go of my mistakes. Letting go of my fear.
Maybe it’s my bilingual kid. Maybe it’s being a mother. Maybe it’s been 7 years.
But, yes. This is the way to do it.
