5 Pieces of Information that New Olim Should Know

I'm playing around with a new tool called Sleeqo which automates the whole meme process. This is my first meme creation using Sleeqo. Be sure to try it out yourself!

5 Pieces of Information that New Olim Should Know

by triLcat
Rules: Post 5 things that a new immigrant to Israel needs to know. No politics!
  1. Israeli doctors don't have thermometers. You're expected to have taken your temperature (or your child's) at home.
  2. If you want to make a graham cracker crust in Israel, you use tea biscuits.
  3. The best time of year to buy new dishes, pots, and pans (in terms of deals) is right before Pesach.
  4. We don't have kool-aid here, we have syrup, called petel, which means raspberry. It's called petel even if it's grape flavored.
  5. Almost every supermarket has delivery for about 15 shekels. If you buy enough, it may be free. You can also order groceries online or by phone.

Some comments

1. You sure? My doctors always had thermometers. The current one has that cool infrared thing that he puts in my ear and it reads my temperature in seconds.
2. Can I have some of that?
4. I don't think that non-raspberry syrup is called petel anymore. At least not by grown-ups.. People should refer to it as tarkiz X or syrup X. Otherwise it's just incorrect.

You can order groceries online? Where? How? We totally could have used that during this week of affliction. :sigh:

My doctor doesn't have a thermometer, but he has a really cool blood pressure machine. He just pushes a button, and then goes off and surfs the net (he claims he's entering diagnoses) until it beeps!

You can order online here.

It's from "Supersol". (they call the online part "netsal")

I've been using it happily for 3 years.:)
