Year Course Top Tips for a Great Year in Israel – Round 1!

By 829 General
  1. Always have a reusable bag handy.
  2. Classes are great, but you’ll learn more about Israeli history and collective memory if you ask your taxi driver where he’s from.
  3. Never let your guard down at the beach – stray, high-speed matkot balls are EVERYWHERE!
  4. Circle the first day of  Sukkot on your calendars – it’s the opening of Krembo season.
  5. Take in a soccer game, but don’t dare to call it anything but ‘football.’ (You can also learn some very colorful language watching the game that you probably won’t hear anywhere else…)
  6. Enjoy an impromptu outing by pooling all of your loose change with friends and having a picnic.
  7. Learn the difference between “white spreadable cheese” and “cottage cheese.”  There’s nothing worse than thinking you bought a container of cottage cheese only to realize you purchased its weird white cheese cousin.
  8. Never pass up a Shabbat invitation – you never know who you’ll meet.
  9. Have a powerful experience on KUMA in Poland.
  10. Shoko b’Sakit
