The Coolest Anglo Immigrant of Israel- You Need to Know Her!

lisa.jpgThis girl has me obsessed. She is beautiful, but that’s not why. She is an awesome dancer, but that’s not why.

I am crazy about Lisa Oberman because the girl has guts. If you don’t know who I am talking about then keep reading until you too become a fan.

Lisa, 21 years old, made aliyah from Canada after going on birthright when she was 18. So big deal, there are a bunch of us now with a similar story: from birthright to aliyah.

Lisa is just learning Hebrew yet she is a contestant on one of Israel’s most popular television shows, “A Star in Born: Dancer,” a spin off of American Idol with an Israeli twist and the competition is for the best dancer instead of singer.

The girl is brave! She is surrounded by Israelis, everyone speaks Hebrew, there are even more Israelis in the audience and the whole of Israel gets to vote if she continues in the competition and becomes the next big time Israeli dancer.

So while I get nervous about making it in Israel and complain that I have less opportunity here because I don’t speak the language, Lisa doesn’t even think twice before going for the most prestigious honor in the Israeli dancing world.

This girl rocks my world. She is literally breaking down cultural barriers that many Anglo immigrants face in Israel. After living here for three years I still feel on the outside of most conversations, television shows and humor in general- but Lisa is dancing her way through all that.

Like me, you should vote for her on the basis that she is a great dancer and the best Anglo immigrant ever!

Check out her interview which will only make you love her more.

Now that I got that out of my system I can go back to being semi-normal and not having a weird girl-crush!

    Wasn’t that one of the characters in “Basic Instinct?” Michael Douglas can’t find her in some school archives and Sharon Stone says “I SAID HO-BERMAN.”

    Molly, when are you trying out for this show?

    More people need to be Lisa fans so we don’t have “Benjis” comparing her to Basic Instinct and instead recognize her for the awesome olah hadasha that she is! Benji Benji!

    What do members of Lisa’s fan club receive? Autographed picture? Backstage access to her performances?
