Mazel tov Jay and Lena! My in-laws also made alliyah 3 years ago at a "golden age" and they are very happy here. Sometimes, they employ my kids-married students (former soldiers) and my 19 year old to handle some of their problems as they are bilingual and resourceful with the ability to fix a lot of stuff in the apt, deal with "Israelis," bargin, etc. If you'd like, you can hire them too should you need some caring young people to help you out. contact me by email: email@example.com or call 02-5807-869 or you are welcome just to call me-Riva- and ask questions for things that might be helpful.
Best of luck!
