This past week Nefesh B'Nefesh, in honor of Parshas Shelach, which recounts the story of the spies who brought back a negative report about Eretz Yisrael, asked bloggers for their reasons for making Aliyah - moving to Israel. Seeing that Life in Israel was involved in this project, I asked him if he could round up as many as he could. I really appreciate his efforts! I'll link to different bloggers and offer one of their reasons. Follow the links to learn more!

Life in Israel
Softball (sure you have it in the US too, but Softball in Israel? the best!)
Hubs Cubs
Hebrew: Lashon haKodesh is the basic vernacular.
Am Echad
The fulfillment of Biblical prophesy.

Sabra At Heart
Golan_Heights and all the different hikes in that area.
Chayyei Sarah
There is a sense here that Judaism is an organic part of life, less rigid than the way it's practiced in the US, and therefore more accessible.
Treppenwitz (Actually Mrs. Treppenwitz)
Believe it or not, the “yenta” factor! I LOVE that all the Bubbies will yell at me if they think Yonah is over or under dressed! I love that people feel so connected that they are not shy about expressing their concern!
Life Through My Eyes
HaTikvah. A national anthem that actually speaks to your soul. Now imagine singing it with 40,000 Israelis at sporting events ...
If you Will it..
Israel gives me an overwhelming sense of belonging.
Mother in Israel
The produce. Fresh and in season. And one thing that is much cheaper than in the US.
Libi B'Mizrach
Really feeling the New Year start in the fall, with Rosh Hashana, as the whole country gets ready for the chagim.
Being able to ask a shopkeeper if a kitchen item needs to be toveled in the mikvah.
Jameel (Muqata)
Can be Oleh LaRegel to Yerushalayim for the Chagim/holidays...or any day!
BECAUSE IT’S A MITZVAH. (Though you have to skip to the end to discover that.)
Messing with people's minds when they find out that I'm a religious and right-wing Israeli and yet not a racist.
I get to carry a gun (more than one in fact), and go to really cool (though really difficult) CTU training (and have definitely become as proficient as "Jack Bauer" is supposed to be).
Esser Agaroth
The simple, everyday act of commuting to work can be a lesson in ancient, Jewish history and geography.
And courtesy of Esser Agaroth, here are 10 excuses and their refutations!

Though not directly applicable, Daf Notes Discussion starts a discussion on Loshon Hara on Eretz Yisroel. Why not join in with your own thoughts?
