Tech Talk / Re: Kosher Phone - US edition
« on: June 14, 2018, 07:56:35 PM »
All the other threads are Israeli :)
If my daughter's camp wants her to get a kosher phone, what does that mean? talk and text only?
Should I get a sprint $15 plan, or is there a better way?
Usually kosher for younger kids is talk only. If her camp is in the Catskills do not use Sprint, it might not work. Everyone who goes gets Verizon. There are places that sell such phones.

This is a very slick piece. Both highly advanced and powerful. Completely brand new. Never opened even the plastic. Asking price $899. Free shipping in US
Why are you selling at $400 under value? Looks suspicious.

Just Shmooze / How hard is it financially to make it in Israel?

What do they do? Where do they live? And all this without help? Would love to hear some details.
I only replied to this thread because I got a notification and I donít like hearing negative things about Israel. PM me and Iíll send you details when I can, but letís just say that there are no college degrees involved!
I also donít see how there would be any obstacles to your definition of success

Are those relatives that moved from the US? Or have they basically always lived there ?
All have moved there, I had no family in Israel before. From different places including here and from different social circles as well. Everyone is happy.

I've heard so many stories of people who made Aliyah and moved back or others who are there and are struggling terribly. It seems that if you don't have some of the highest paying jobs (denist, lawyer, tech etc) that it's really hard to succeed in Israel on your own.

I realize life costs differ person to person and based on various details (what area you live in, number of kids, how you manage money etc ). 

I'd love to hear people's own experience or thoughts on the matter.

The people I know who are getting by either have some great careers or had help at the very  least to purchase their house etc.
I have relatives in Israel living very modestly and they would never live anywhere else, unlike us who would move there in a heartbeat if we were threatened here. Perhaps us and millions of Israelis donít have the same definition of success. Israel is the best place to be in the world and has opportunities for everyone, the only issue are peopleís standards.

Just noticed this note in a PNR of my pax who flew 2 days ago on AF.
People don't realize what they do, and then claim that FA's are antisemite.

They usually document these things as a secured note which agents cant read, who knows how often this happens.
