Summary: Pros and Cons of Living in Israel. Expats, Retirees and Digital Nomads talk about the pros and cons of living in Israel

What are the pros and cons of living in Israel?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Israel responded:

"I came to Israel because I loved it here. My two kids live here (my daughter got married this week!) But life here is so so unnecessarily hard. I'm shocked at the filth and garbage. The constant noise (and I'm a city girl, from NY & Boston). People don't recycle. Dog poop all over. Cost of living is sky high (cheaper outside the center, but the center is where everyone is!) Our wi-fi sucks half the time though that's getting better. The banking laws are medieval. So there ya go. We are out of here soon," remarked another expat in Tel Aviv.
