Dear Momentum Family –
Jerusalem is one big Sukkot party this week. One of the pleasures has been meeting so many Momentum/JWRP alumni who continually share that coming on the 8-day experience in Israel with us was truly “life-changing”. They are saying that while back in Israel this week with their husbands and kids, here for the holidays. But many came back to Israel and never left. I personally know of over 20 families who, inspired by their experience in Israel and the “Year of Growth” post-trip learning, have made Aliyah and now call Israel home.
Israel is not long ago or far away. It is not an unattainable dream. It is a real possibility to join a thriving and growing country at the cutting edge of innovation and technology, with spirituality and a drive to change the world for the better at its heart and soul.
To see first hand that Momentum planted seeds that led to decisions that change the course of a family for generations to come is beyond inspiring. But that does not only happen with a move to Israel for 20 families. It’s also thousands of families who decided to switch their kids to Jewish schools, or light candles on Friday night or build a Sukkah for the very first time.
Real change is happening, one Jewish decision at a time.
Good Shabbos, Shabbat Shalom, Chag Sameach!
