So the price of gas in Israel is about to go up... again, this time to $7.19 a gallon.

My parents asked me how do we survive with gas that high?

I don't know.

B/C your home costs 1/3 the price of an equivalent sized home in a major Orthodox neighborhood in the USA, and your kids tuition costs about 25% of equivalent tuition from K thru College, and health care costs about 25% of what it does in the USA.

That makes up for a lot of gasoline.

We don't have a car, so we waste more time and less money.

And your salary is also 1/3 of the equivalent in the USA :-)

Really truly the reason people manage is because of one thing ... that's right, because of the Kadosh Baruch Hu!!!
