Being in Eretz Yisroel is one of the most wonderful times in life. Adjusting back to 'reality' is one of the hardest. How can a person stay spiritually charged when they are at work, or in school? How does one stay close and loving to family and friends after a life-changing experience? What can we learn from others who have been down this path before?

In this original and powerful volume, R' Yankie Schwartz shares information, wisdom, and time-tested advice. This one book can help turn your year in Israel into a lifetime of happiness and growth.
