    ...Both of my parents are Levites.(father a cohane)..and it says they are not to have a share of the land in Israel.so maybe that's why they never went to live there.though they visited..My grandparents who were orthodox came to NY after WW1 I have been to Israel a few times ..once was married to a Israeli..now divorced I live in the US where I was born, with my son who just turned 18...Several years ago when I went to the jewish agency to do an aliyah..they were not very encouraging me being a divorced mom, and it took a few months before I was approved for citizenship after having to show my parents wedding ketubah from 1948 and my Get ..they turned me down for a absorpiton apt saying single mothers never leave them and they wanted my then 13 yr old son to go for a psyche evaluation to see what kind of school to put him in..You want more jews to Israel...do an overall on some of those workers at the Jewish Agency esp in the NY area..who think all american jews are rich..even my son was mad about this system.
