It’s Never Too Late

I am still busy cleaning for Pesach (although we are heading into the home stretch – tomorrow by noon my kitchen should be finished..) but I stopped for a few minutes to catch up on some news websites. I thought this article was heartwarming, about a 97 year old woman who is one of the oldest people to make aliyah (move to Israel).

Her daughter urged her to come already, “while you are still healthy and able to enjoy it” – bli ayin hara. 

It’s never too late to make the dream come true! “Next year in Jerusalem” indeed!

    My neighbor brought her father a few months ago. He was “dying,” and now he takes walks in front of the house on his own.

    what I find even more amazing is that she has visited every year since the State was founded, and has recently been visiting twice a year! I wish I had that much energy!
