    • Neighborhood suggestions for new Olim (Near tel Aviv)

      Israel Jun 1, 2016 at 4:03 PM


      I'm making Aliyah to Israel and in the process of reviewing the different cities/neighborhoods. If there isn't much of a cost difference between Tel Aviv & surrounding areas please let me know. Based on my below criteria, any suggestions for a best suited area?

      -Within 1 hour to Tel Aviv (approximately) using public transportation

      -Affordable as possible

      -English speaking community

      -Dog friendly

      -Diverse mix of people with overall open-mindedness (diverse mix of religions too)

      -Thriving community with businesses, schools, restaurants & friendly to Olim

      -Farmers markets & ample veggie/fruits availability

      So far, I've looked into Be’er Sheva, Rishon LeZion, Netanya, Giv'atayim, Ramat Gan. Although I've never been to Israel before so any suggestions would be sincerely appreciated, thanks.

      I have two possible desert tours that I can take during my June Israel trip. Not sure which one might be the best bet. Price is the same. Both through Abraham tours. Thoughts? Why would one be better than the other? Thanks for the feedback!

      1) - Small Crater, Ben Gurion grave, Ein Avdat nature reserve, Bedouin camp

      2) - Mount Azazel, Views of Mar Saba, Ein Prat nature reserve

      We are arriving at Ben Gurion on a Saturday morning and would like to stash our luggage for the day. The airport website says their luggage storage is closed on Saturday, but the railway station has automated lockers.

      Does anyone know if they are accessible on Saturday, even though the trains are not running? Or is the station locked up?

    • Appropriate women's attire for Israel Tel Aviv and Jeruseleum?

      Israel Oct 11, 2015 at 11:34 AM

      I'll be on a tour in Nov 2015 in Tel Aviv and Jeruseleum. Please give me some tips on appropriate women's attire for ages 45-65. I've heard it's important to wear a hat in the sun. Are there certain styles, colors or types of women's wear that should not be worn. I was told to dress conservatively, not to stand out with flashy or expensive clothing. Can anyone elaborate on these recommendations? I am planning to bring black canvas walking shoes to wear with my pants and flat heeled boots to wear with my mid-calf skirt. I'm assuming I can buy scarves when I get there depending on the weather and how much extra warmth is needed.

      Thank you in advance for any advice from women who have traveled in these cities.
