“I arrived in Israel fresh out of grad school with an engineering degree in my hand and a dream in my heart. After my first few months in Israel searching for a job with no luck, my in-laws made the trip from the US to visit my wife and me. They sat on the plane for several hours at JFK before takeoff because of inclement weather and befriended an Israeli man sitting next to them. After they told him that we made Aliyah, he said, ‘That’s great – I’d love to help!’ The next day he put me in touch with his brother who works for Apple in Israel. A few weeks and several interviews later, I started my first day of work at Apple. Israelis know that making Aliyah is tough, so they are humbled when they hear you’ve done it and their warm side shines through.” #LiveLoveIsrael
