We asked expats and digital nomads what they find the most challenging about the local culture in Israel. They wrote...

"Expats in Israel often find the local culture to be quite different from what they are used to, and can find it challenging to adjust to the new environment. Many expats find the language barrier to be a major challenge, as Hebrew is the primary language spoken in Israel.

Expats may also find it difficult to adjust to the fast-paced lifestyle in Israel, as well as the country's strict security measures," commented one expat who made the move to Israel.
