ISRAEL, MY HOME WHERE I BELONG!
I am Devorah from California, and I recently made aliyah in January 2009 at the age of 21. I formerly lived in Anaheim, although I was born in France. I studied in Berkeley where I received a degree in English. Yeah! After aliyah, I was fortunate enough to get a job. I am working in Jerusalem and living in Givat Ze’ev. I will be joining the Israeli army for a year in October.
People are curious why I came to Israel. But I can honestly say I never felt proud to be Jewish until I went to college where I rediscovered my Jewish identity. After coming with Taglit to Israel, I felt a connection to the land and knew that this was my home, Israel, where I belong.
