No longer do Israelis drivearound in cars 10 years old, but are racing around (and I do mean racing) in all the same mod- els that we drive here. What makes this so extraordinary I is that they have to pay at least twice as much as we do, I due to the high taxes thatare ] added to the cost of the car.

Near the Mediterranean coast a price of 2,500,000 shekels ($675,000) for a two-bedroom apartment was considered normal. And along with the growth of these communities huge shopping malls were being erected. Beautiful, shiny bright malls filled with every designer label store and more. On Friday mornings, kiosks offered delectable, freshly prepared foods for Shabbat; bakeries had shelves overflow- ing with all manner of breads, rolls, cookies, cakes and pastries and the aisles were crowded with shoppers. The new mall we visited in south Netanya had underground parking for more than 1,000 and above ground parking as well. its share of problems. There have been public protests against the high cost of living, such asthe price of housing, transport, childcare, food and fuel. Recently, its health care system suffered a budget cut NIS 150 million (about $40 million). The chairman of the Israel Medical Asso- ciation said that, "there is no doubt the medical system needs much more funding to meet its needs". Therefore, it becomes obvious that outside assistance from organizations such as Hadassah will be a continuing necessity for the foreseeable future. We returned from our trip filled with enthusiasm and zeal, knowing that our sup- port for Israel will be even greater than,before and look forward to our next trip. Across 1. Dell, e.g, 5.
