Ten Good Reasons to Make Aliyah

In no particular order.

1. You can get nearly anywhere in the country without a car. (failing a bus, tremp.)

2. Chayalim (for females)

3. Falafel.

4. The hikes. Especially Darga.

5. Chayalot (for males)

6. Chocolate spread on lachmaniyot for breakfast

7. The Kars4Kids jingle*

8. Sponga. (Ok, just kidding on that one.)

9. Obamacare*

10. No matter how you dress, you won’t be conspicuous.

* These only apply if you are a potential olah from the US.

Any others to add?
