SETTLING FOR MORE: From Jersey to Judea
Leaving behind a daughter in college and a comfortable suburban life in Teaneck, New Jersey, Zahava Englard packed up her husband, two teenage sons, and ten-year-old daughter to move to the Judean hills in the midst of the 2006 Hezbollah-Israeli war.
Armed with wit and humor, she passionately conveys a candid account of the family's drastically altered world. Zahava's wide-ranging anecdotes of her initial years in Israel evolve unexpectedly into a strong and spiritually infused argument for aliyah.
"A timely and inspirational account that provides lively insight into what a new immigrant faces in Judea and in the country at large."
-Oded Revivi, Mayor of Efrat

"CAUTION! Those indecisive about going on aliyah this book will push you over the line!"
-Steven Orlow, President of One Israel Fund
"Zahava's madcap humor keeps you laughing until she slaps you with the actuality of Arab terrorism, Israel s construction of the Separation Wall, and the reality of being the mother of a soldier. Zahava Englard teaches readers about idealism and Zionist values as she fights for Efrat s Eitam Hill and honors our nation's true leaders and defenders."
