Jessica Fishman created The Aliyah Survival Blog to share her Aliyah experiences, which proved quite eventful and unpredictable. It is her hope that other olim and potential olim can benefit from this website and find some humor in their self-imposed trials and tribulations.
The blog will take you through her personal story of making Aliyah, with a bit of wit and cynicism. While the process of moving to Israel, dealing with bureaucracy, learning Hebrew, becoming absorbed into a new culture, joining the army, and the many other steps can be difficult, they can also be comical. This blog will expose her comical, and sometimes embarrassing, transformation from being an American living in Israel to becoming an Israeli with an American accent.
The Aliyah Survival Blog is an excellent example of the self-deprecating wit and humor in her new book – Chutzpah & High Heels: The Search for Love and Identity in The Holy Land.
