Dear Friends,

Chani, the children and I arrived safely in Israel. It was a long voyage, with not much sleep but the excitement of the children started while in the airport, when they saw something they have never seen before.

I think it wasn't only the unusual size of the Mezuzah that drew their attention, it was the idea that a Mezuzah at the entrance to the country is what welcomed them to the land.

This item explains everything about the experience of coming to Israel for the first time from the diaspora. Israel is not a field of pink roses, but it is our home and we felt it in our hearts when we kissed that big Mezuzah in Ben Gurion international airport…
