When the Rambam defines tshuva gemura, his example includes the sinner returning to the same circumstances including place. (I thought about studies concerning addiction and triggers – place matters!)

In his Q and A (to Stern College IIUC) R Asher Weiss stated that one’s childrens chinuch was a reason not to make aliya. Wouldn’t that imply that the US MO community should commission a study of educational outcomes in the US and Israel to give its constituents base rate information (paging Kahnemann/Tversky) for decision making? (of course this would require some definitions of desired outcomes – might that be too scary?)
