One thing that has fascinated me since I got here is how the Israel post office, known as the "Doar" is the one place you get everything done. And that means everything.
Here's a little contest. From the following list, can you pick out the ones that can't be done at the Doar?
--send and receive mail. --open a bank account. --get your shoes shined. --sign up for health insurance. --pay your bills. --trade in a non-functioning remote control for a new one. --register your car. --buy stamps. --pay for your speeding tickets.
The winner will receive, well, you'll receive nothing. Who can beat the satisfaction of a job well done? If you want to win big, play lotto.
My husband and I made Aliyah in September, 07. We came with three daughters, ages 10, 12 and 14. Aliyah is not an easy adjustment for all us at our advanced ages, but we are happy to be here in the land of the Jewish people and are rising to the challenge of learning to be real Israelis (!).
