Yael Silverman, who grew up in our shul, is among the 300 folks who were on the ALIYAH flight to Israel. Â Over the years, many of our congregants have made aliyah, and continued their Jewish journey inside the Jewish homeland. Â We salute them all, and celebrate their decision. Â For additional information on aliyah, please contact Nefesh b’Nefesh atÂ www.nbn.org.il.

Over the past 8 years Beth Jacob has sent many students on gap year programs. Â The vast majority of these students, who take a year off before starting college, have gone to Israel on Nativ (www.nativ.org). Â They have come toÂ understandÂ the complexities of Israel and the challenges that it faces in ways that most never have the opportunity to. Â This is indeed an investment in a life worth making.
