E-mail Print PDF
The Poconos, Pa.—Most people I know visit the Poconos for two things: white water rafting (day trippers) and Great Wolf Lodge for winter break or a long extended weekend.

On the way back to Bergen County, or on your way to the Poconos, there is a NJ rest stop, the only pit stop on Route 80 West that offers great views, beautiful picnic areas, vending machine food if you need it. There’s also a dog run, and lovely fields and shady groves that are perfect for playing Frisbee, having a picnic, or just relaxing with a book or a pair of binoculars. It’s a great place to change diapers and let the kids blow off some steam before you make the final leg of your journey.

The rest stop is also a lovely garden with all sorts of specimen plants that are...

New Country, New Careers

E-mail Print PDF
We are all “works in pro­gress,” hopefully always try­ing to grow and expand our horizons. Making aliyah is a growth opportunity, affording people the op­portunity to explore new career paths in the Holy Land. I, for example, had been involved in Manhattan investment sales—primarily of­fice and apartment buildings—for many years. A few years after moving to Israel, I decided it was time for my work to make aliyah too, and I created a real estate firm primarily focused on helping families from overseas fulfill their dream of buying a home in Israel. And I am not alone; numerous friends have changed careers in Israel and are making their mark on society.

Therefore, I wasn’t...
