Is the cost of living in Israel high?

We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Israel, they wrote:

"The cost of living in Israel is generally higher than in many other countries. Prices for basic necessities such as food, housing, and transportation are all higher than in many other countries. The cost of living in Israel is also affected by the exchange rate of the Israeli Shekel to other currencies. In addition, taxes are higher in Israel than in many other countries. All of these factors contribute to the overall cost of living in Israel," remarked one in Israel.
