After packing a suitcase, bidding farewell to friends and purchasing a one-way plane ticket, Israeli socialite and media personality Judy Moses landed in New York City and was warmly greeted by her close friend Ofer Levy, the husband of model Nicole Halperin.
Judy stayed in a hotel for the first few nights in the big city but was on the lookout for an apartment that would meet her and her partner's needs from the get-go. Her partner, criminal lawyer Avi Rotenberg, joined her on her journey, despite spending half of his time in Israel for work.
"After being used to living in a large house with a yard and everything, suddenly living in a relatively small apartment feels strange," she said.
She expressed concern that it would be a significant challenge for their relationship. "We will be spending a lot of time together, much more than when we are in Israel. But I think we will manage it," she added.
She also got a little help from her son Tomer and her ex-husband Silvan Shalom who also happened to be in New York. “Truth is, our divorce is great. It's so important, in my opinion, when you're divorced from someone, to have a good relationship with them. For the sake of the children, but also for yourself. A person you were with for 26 years. And I'll always love him, He'll always be a good friend of mine.”
