Tel Aviv



Morale among expats:

Mostly high. - Apr 10, 2013
Good on average. You will be surprised however to find out how much you are on your own. There is no support community with the American Embassy. CLO is quite good at lip service, poor on delivery. You're on your own. - Aug 14, 2010
It's not easy living here, and it is very hard to fit in if you are not Jewish. Israelis are as hostile, stubborn and argumentative as you have heard, and it gets exhausting on a daily basis. You can't even buy groceries without someone trying to run you over with a shopping cart and starting a fight. - Jul 26, 2010
High- the quality of life here is fantastic, the weather is wonderful and there are lots of opportunities to travel around the country. - Feb 27, 2009
