    I live in Israel, need money and need something to do. The average wage is about 25 shekels an hour which is not worth it for me because after paying for a babysitter and transportation i’m not left with anything substantial enough to make it worth my effort. I want to do something from home, I have some, not too much, money to invest in a business or maybe provide some kind of service. Any good ideas?! (there are many people like me here so most ideas have already been used many times over and there’d be no need for more, so I need something original!)

    English lessons? Tutoring of some sort? Translations? Typing CVs? Do you sew? A telecommuting job? I guess none of these are very original, but I hope they help.

    I know someone that’s very fond of saying

    “Hishtadlus for parnassah, especially for (an American) living in Eretz Yisroel, has alot to do with one word: CREATIVITY”

    for example:

    1. A couple living in Yerushalayim, who came from the US started an adorable cookies business. They marketed it to people living OUTSIDE Eretz Yisroel (website, brochure ect) to send an arraignment of cookies to a sem or Yeshiva student learning in E”Y.

    Brilliant! No degree, just creativity and a learned skill.

    2. On a totally different end… Menashe Sophers Airport service. A father living in Yerushalayim- Telze Stone created a huge network of airport services of all kinds- transportation there and back, expedited VIP service, service for groups… Once again, Brilliancy with creativity!

    The only thing you can launder profitably in EY is dirty money from the former Soviet Union.

    Tour guide requires a two-year training.

    and only licenced tour guides make good money!

    Seriously, if there is any work you can do online either as a telecommuting employee of a foreign firm or as a freelancer, that is probably the best solution, especially if you are paid abroad or electronically. I think you have a 10 year tax holiday from foreign income, so you can take advantage of that to provide services abroad. Just do not play games and make sure you really are working and getting paid abroad and that this qualifies, because the malachei hachabala of the state tax service will ruin your life for anything that remotely resembles evading the horrendously high taxes in EY.

    A600KiloBear is correct when he writes that the income tax authorities will turn your life into gehinom if you evade taxes. Of course, the same could be said of the IRS.

    While taxes are higher here in the US, they have been lowered in recent years.

    But the main thing is that if you do take self-employment in any way, you must set yourself up as an “osek murshe”, which provides you with a framework for paying taxes and national insurance.

    Yes, it is a terrible pain in the well, everything, but you pretty much have to do the same in the US as well, if you wish to obey the law of the land.

    We have home day care, it pays app. 7500 shekels per month before expenses. Expenses are around 1500 shekels, and your charged taxes on 4500 shekels of the amount. The work is strenuous, 5 children, one can be your own, from 7:00-4:00, but the parents tend to bring the children closer to 9:00. You will need to take a class and get certified.

    I’ve been told that the really big employment demand is in construction and agriculture; Israel imports temporary workers from other countries and even hires Palestinian Arabs from the West Bank because Jews aren’t available.
