WANTED: A BROOKLYN APARTMENT WITH MORE SPACE

Eyal and Karen Hen started off as roommates.

Mr. Hen came to New York from Israel a dozen years ago after serving in the Israeli army, and shared a large apartment in Kensington, Brooklyn with several other Israelis.

A few years later, he recieved a Facebook message from Karen Rehany, who was from the same Israeli town, Nahariya. She was interested in coming to New York. His apartment had an available room; she jumped at the opportunity. He picked her up at the airport.
