I did one of these the summer we moved here....but it has been a while.  I know there is a lot of misinformation out there about my country, so I figured I would do this again.

DH and I were both born and raised in America.....our families are both from America.  We had wanted to move to Israel for a long time - we are Jewish and feel strongly that Jews belong in Israel - so we finally made the move here in Sept 2012.

We are Orthodox Jews.  We have five children.  Our oldest daughter still lives in the states - she was entering her senior year of college when we moved and was offered a job in her field right after graduation and couldn't pass it up, so she is still there (for now).  Our other four children are here with us.

We live in a small town in the mountains in northern Israel - about 7 miles from the Lebanese boarder.

So - those are the basics.....ask away.

How do the schools compare with American schools?

Have you had any bombings in/near your city?

What is your favorite thing about being in Israel vs America?

Not to sound obtuse, but is it safe where you live?

 Do you miss America or anything about it?

So how is everyone adjusting, I remember when you made the big move.

How is your oldest doing on her own? 

how often do you get back?

How old are your other 4 any college age?

any thinking of moving back to the US for college?

Are you all still US citizens or dual citizenship?

No questions, support Israel, wish to visit there one day but a little too concerned about the turmoil near there right now.

No questions. But I do enjoy your posts when you talk about your personal life. I've always wanted to go to Israel :).

What do you think of the way America deals with the threats against Israel from other countries?

Cool. Do ya mind posting photos of your home, neighborhood, etc? Im always fascinated by how people live in other countries. What is your favorite part of living in israel? Least favorite? Do you ever miss the states? Are there things that you have grown attached to in the statws that do not existed or are hard to find in israel?
