Also on a fun and anecdotal note, I shaved my beard last night. It was motivated partially by a comment that I made in carpool that I look like an 11 year old boy without a beard, combined with the fact that I like to take it off once a year to make sure I still like it (I do), to run the half marathon in Tel Aviv clean faced (it feels nice) and to prepare for sfira – the time after Passover when we are supposed to not shave for just over a month.All in all, Thursday was a joyous, memorable and all around unbelievable day. I am really happy with my decision to make Aliyah and want to thank everyone here for their support and good wishes.
