When did you make Aliyah?
I made Aliyah on November 15, 2017.
How did you decide which community to move to?
When I first came here, I was in yeshiva. After yeshiva, I looked for places close to the center because that’s the location with which I was most familiar. After living there for a year and a half, I moved to Katamon. It’s a very nice part of Jerusalem, quiet and a close bus ride into town.
How did you enter the Israeli job market?
I am not working in the same thing I was in America, mainly because usually the only jobs a person who hasn’t yet done the army are in restaurants and cleaning. People don’t want to hire people that will only be working for a few months. Finding a job in Israel mostly comes from friends and contacts. There are also apps and Facebook.
Do you have any retirement plans?
I barely have plans for tomorrow, much less retirement haha.
What tips do you have for someone who is planning to make Aliyah?
You have to have your values straight. Israel is a country where everyone struggles financially, culturally, and with the language. To move to Israel you have to be strong and ready to grow as a person. When it comes to potential, Israel can bring out the best in people.
