Description:
In his third book of the Israel for Beginners series, the author again uses his personal experience to highlight the challenges of non-natives (about 40 percent of the Israeli population) as they negotiate life in their adoptive country. Through a collection of insightful essays, Israelis are once again wittily explained to prospective immigrants, new immigrants, and the public at large. Israel for Perplexed Beginners is an enjoyable read for newcomers and old-timers alike.

Learn more about:

  • Sabras: like cactus pears to which they are often compared, the Israeli natives display a spiny exterior concealing a tender, sweet core.
  • Israeli technology’s great advancement in the last decades: it has apparently been produced by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things.
  • Desalination: from Moses parting the Red Sea to Jesus walking on the Sea of Galilee, the ability of Jews to perform miracles with water has been legendary.
  • And much more!
