Herzliya Pituach - Post Report Question and Answers

Is it easy to make friends with locals here? Are there any prejudices or any ethnic groups who might feel uncomfortable here?

Being friendly with locals is ok but not advised to be really close. The prejudice against Arabs is very evident. The constant friction in Jerusalem and surrounding areas can be unsettling and quite shocking. In my opinion, Israelis are very difficult to deal with most of the time. They can be rude, not good with personal space, cut in line, and aggressive driving. That said, you will find locals that get to know you and go out of their way to be very nice. - Mar 2022
