Arsen Ostrovsky

Shalom there folks! My name is Arsen and I just moved to Israel, making Aliyah from Down Under (ie, Australia). Won’t lie – had something to do with the stunning beaches, incredible Tel Aviv nightlife, the breathtaking landscape & awesome food … and well … the even more awesome Israeli girls! Ok, ok, so it may have also had something to do with this little thing called Zionism too! So please join me on my Aliyah adventure, as I explore this beautiful country through Instagram!
