Touch down in Jo'burg. Some may say we are home but I cannot associate Johannesburg with the word "home". But when I think about Johannesburg, I think about the place where I was brought up and a place where I have all my childhood memories. But home , home for me is not some place in Johannesburg. Home is some place where there is the Hebrew language being spoken constantly, where you don't have to have any driving skills whatsoever because you just drive however you want, a place which is beyond chaotic on a Friday afternoon at the shuk because everyone is trying to get those last minute products. Home is a place where my ancestors arrived and turned into a Jewish homeland. Home is a place where I can feel safe as I walk in the street because I know I have an incredible army protecting me. Home is a place where I can go to a holy wall and pray to Hashem. My home .... OUR HOME is Israel and there is no place I would rather be right now.
This year I said לשנה הבא בירושלים at my pesach Seder and please god my wish will come true.
