Leaving Home Going Home Returning Home

4 years ago

Hi , I moved to Israel in 1984 and lived there for 23 years. I was a great adventure and learning experience. I wanted to share my experiences over these years, The good, the bad, the great and the ugly. So I wrote a memoir. It was the first memoir to cover living in Israel over these years. The name of the book is " Leaving Home, Going Home , Returning Home : A Hebrew American's Sojourn in the Land of Israel". It received great reviews on Amazon.com . It can be purchased by Kindle and save shipping costs to Israel if you are already there , or on the plane. I have a blog of same name and a webpage about the book. A must read for anyone moving to Israel or visiting there.
