New, First-Of-Its-Kind, Israel Book A Surprise Bestseller on

Jerusalem (PRWeb) February 2, 2007 -- Hundreds of people purchased MOVING UP: An Aliyah* Journal (Mazo Publishers) in the first weeks after publication of the book by first-time author, Laura Ben-David ( Lately, with thousands of North American Jews leaving their lives of relative comfort to share in the millennia-old dream of living in Israel, the timing couldn't be better for this exciting, new book that offers an inside glimpse into the phenomenon of Western Aliyah.

Laura Ben-David, who, along with her family, immigrated to Israel on the inaugural Nefesh B'Nefesh* flight, found her true passion in writing and speaking about Israel. Ben-David's engaging, anecdotal accounts, which are both humorous and uplifting, while being honest and real, found a large and receptive audience via forwarded e-mails. Apparently, this wide audience will become wider still with the publication of the collection of emails that make up the first, eventful year of Ben-David's Aliyah experience. 250 books alone were just shipped to one organization in America. With the book's broad appeal to those across the religious spectrum, it seems that Ben-David's book will go far indeed

"I never planned on writing a book," Ben-David comments, "but there was such a great thirst for stories about life in Israel beyond CNN. And I have a lot of stories!"

As Nefesh B'Nefesh has just welcomed its 10,000th oleh, it is fitting that Ben-David, the organization's very first oleh, has brought this page-turner into the marketplace. "We applaud Laura Ben-David for her honest, inspiring, and humorous Aliyah memoirs," said NBN Co-Founder and Executive Director, Rabbi Yehoshua Fass. "The reader will follow her on her emotional roller coaster as she experiences the trials and the triumphs of establishing her family in her new home in Israel. Many will discover a modern Israel that they were unaware of and some might even follow in her footsteps..."

About the Author

She started keeping an e-journal of her Aliyah the day the moving men stampeded into their home, to forever change their lives. Her engaging anecdotal accounts are often funny, other times poignant, but always a joy to read. Laura is available to speak about Israel and Aliyah at your organization's events. She can be reached via e-mail.
