Living in Israel is great. Especially for those who wish to live the Jewish lifestyle. Kosher food (in restaurants and grocery stores), Kosher for Passover food (in restaurants and grocery stores!), scores of synagogues, etc., are all readily available.
The synagogue in a hotel in Eilat, Israel.
How gorgeous is this synagogue in a hotel? Living here is such a contrast to other areas of the world. We were recently flying to Amsterdam and when we got off the plane, the man sitting next to us removed his kippah. He told us that his employer required him to for his own safety.
While we appreciate the freedom and opportunities to live and observe the Biblical holidays and ways here in Israel, we must not fail to recognize how the world is changing and Jewish people around the world are not able to freely live out the Jewish lifestyle.
