If you could move to Eretz YIsrael tomorrow, where would you want to live?
I would live in Petach Tikva. Second choice would be anywhere between Petach Tikva and Yerushalayim. (The most normal people live in Petach Tikva, and I’m not on the level to live in Yerushalayim.)October 30, 2012 2:49 am at 2:49 am #1038308
Meah Shearim.October 30, 2012 2:54 am at 2:54 am #1038309
And Why? Nvm – as a Litvish Kiryas Yoelite, I guess that would be the place for you.October 30, 2012 6:36 pm at 6:36 pm #1038310twistedParticipant
Opening poster: Why would you think you are not on the level? There are all manner of people here, including me, and every spark of added kedusha helps. And I, for other reasons, want to get out to the ultra burbs, so when you are ready, come and take my place.October 30, 2012 6:57 pm at 6:57 pm #1038311147Participant
The old city of Tzefas is very beautiful & quaint.
Furthermore, since I have procured a plot at the Old Cemetery of Tzefas, it would be conveniently nearby.October 30, 2012 9:04 pm at 9:04 pm #1038312
Twisted – that’s very sweet of you.
But I have internet and am scared of the responsibility.October 30, 2012 9:13 pm at 9:13 pm #1038313
If you guys are serious, you best bet is probably Ramat beit shemesh – that is where at least 90% of american oilim live.

What demographics is Har Nof? Ashkenaz/Sefardic, Chareidi/Daati/Chiloni?October 31, 2012 11:24 am at 11:24 am #1038315
What demographics is Har Nof? Ashkenaz/Sefardic, Chareidi/Daati/Chiloni?
There is a not nice joke about Har Nof, that since the americans tend to live at the bottom, sefardim live at the middle, and the so called yeshivishe oilem at the top, to refer to it as teivas noiach!!!!October 31, 2012 3:00 pm at 3:00 pm #1038316haifagirlParticipant
And what’s wrong with Haifa?October 31, 2012 3:01 pm at 3:01 pm #1038317
In Haifa people run the risk of running into a famous girl who is constantly correcting everyone’s grammar.October 31, 2012 3:07 pm at 3:07 pm #1038318popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Hmmm. Ramat Eshkol.October 31, 2012 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #1038319takahmamashParticipant
The Shomron, of course. (Especially since I’m already here!)
And no, goldersgreener, 90% of American olim do not live in Ramat Beit Shemesh. Where did you come up with that? Not even 90% of frum American olim live in Ramat Beit Shemesh. Hard to believe, but not everyone opts for the large English speaking communities when they make aliyah.October 31, 2012 3:13 pm at 3:13 pm #1038320crisisoftheweekMember

Hmmm. Ramat Eshkol.
Which Ramat Eshkol? The one in Jerusalem or the one in Haifa? 😛October 31, 2012 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #1038322ToiParticipant
haifa is prust and goyish. unless you live in ramat vishnitz, in which case thats awesomeOctober 31, 2012 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #1038323ItcheSrulikMember
Golan. I prefer somewhere with more green and I love the mountains there.October 31, 2012 9:51 pm at 9:51 pm #1038324avhabenParticipant
Isn’t the Golan outside the halachic boundries of E”Y?
(I know Eilat is in chutz l’aretz.)October 31, 2012 11:23 pm at 11:23 pm #1038325bringanumbrellaParticipant
Yerushalayim all the way. Maybe one of the Ramots.November 1, 2012 12:11 am at 12:11 am #1038326em0616Member
I would prefer Minchas Yitzchak or Ezras Torah, in Yerushalyim.November 1, 2012 3:45 am at 3:45 am #1038327RABBAIMParticipant
One apt in Tzefas and another in Old City of Yerushalayim!November 1, 2012 10:19 am at 10:19 am #1038328
Sorry, takahmamash, you are correct. only 88.5% of american oilim go to RBS.November 1, 2012 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #1038329takahmamashParticipant
In your dreams, goldersgreener.November 1, 2012 2:52 pm at 2:52 pm #1038330
Yay, this is my first topic to take off!November 1, 2012 3:03 pm at 3:03 pm #1038331BaalHaboozeParticipant
Petach Tikvah, Tel Aviv and Bnei Braq are blistering hot in the summer. I have been there and I am not able to handle the heat and humidity. I prefer Yerusholayim or even Beit Shemesh.November 1, 2012 3:10 pm at 3:10 pm #1038332RamatShiloParticipant
Ramat Shilo on the entrance to ramat beit shemesh is the best anglo locationNovember 1, 2012 3:10 pm at 3:10 pm #1038333WIYMember
I love Har Nof. I would probably consider that.November 1, 2012 3:14 pm at 3:14 pm #1038334
BHB: True, but Yerushalayim is freezing in the winter.
I personally did not mind the heat so much, even without air conditioning. Wearing 100% cotton really helped, it must be much harder for men who have to wear a velvet hat, tzitzis, shirt, and jacket (and I can’t even imagine being chassidish!)November 1, 2012 3:47 pm at 3:47 pm #1038335The Best BubbyParticipant
BaalHaBooze: You can not take the heat of Petach Tikva, Tel Aviv or Bnei Brak, BUT, you can take the heat of Beit Shemesh! Beit Shemesh is EXACTLY what it says, “The House of the Sun”! It is boiling hot there day and night 24/7.
I would prefer to live in Yerushalayim and Tzefat is also beautiful.November 1, 2012 4:01 pm at 4:01 pm #1038336digibochurMember
Im curious why no one has suggested Modiin Illit or Mattisyahu??
Very central location, English speakers, good shopping.November 1, 2012 5:11 pm at 5:11 pm #1038337PosterMember
I live in the ROmema neighborhood of Yerushalayim. Beautiful English speaking etc…..October 29, 2014 8:50 am at 8:50 am #1038338SpiceofLifeMember
Answering digibochur: One reason may be b/c the kind of people who’d want to live in Modiin Illit are less likely to be on this forum.
Where else is there climate similar to (or cooler than) Yerusholayim? What is Beitar like? Tel-Zion?
What kind of crowd live in the newer areas of Telz-stone, eg. Achuzat Ye’arim?October 29, 2014 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm #1038339vayoel mosheMember
Meah shearimOctober 29, 2014 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #1038340BarryLS1Participant
I also live in the Shomron. We have a great community. Everyone who comes to visit feels right at home and loves it here.
Har Nof, for the person who asked, is a mixture.
