My best friend Michelle arrived on my doorstep at 7:30 a.m. this morning. I was asleep and had been happily asleep for only a short 2 hours when she got there. I am happy to say that there was enough space (a result of my being up all night) to allow her and her three very large bags into the apartment. I've never had guests before when my apartment looked like a nuclear bomb had been detonated and this is a first. I don't like it. But I do love Michelle and am so glad she is here. We are about to go out and get "snockered!"

- Name: Yael K
- Location: Tel Aviv, Israel
I am not typical. I am not your typical Aliyah candidate: I'm very secular, did not grow up in a zionist household, and have no family living in Israel. I'm not what people typically think of when they hear "Jewish": I have blond hair, blue eyes, and fair skin. I am not your typical American: I speak 2 1/2 languages, used to vote democratic (and I'm originally from the South!), and the last thing I want is a house in the suburbs.
So what am I? In many ways, I'm a little bundle of contradictions. Stubborn yet not overly-opinionated (at least on most issues). Shy and reserved when I first meet someone but outgoing and bubbly once you get to know me. Practical but also fun-loving and spontaneous (in a practical kind of way, lol).
I believe that I am a kind and caring person (hey, don't we all?). I am passionate about life and fiercely protective of those I love. And I'm crazy about my
3 5 6 cats. And the 40 or so I care for on the street.
