I'm leaving for a Masa program in Haifa very soon, but I have no idea of how much money I need to take with me to eat, personal hygiene, transportation, study materials, and that's pretty much it.

Please help!!

Shalom

#Anonymous on Dec 06, 2012 :
With 6000 shekel one can get by comfortably enough when managing finances well.
#Anonymous on Dec 06, 2012 :
1500 USD is a bit less than 6000 shekel.
That is enough to get by ok for a person good at managing their finances.
Not much left after paying for rent, monthly utilities, food, car and fuel or public transport which is not very convenient in Israel.
#William on Nov 27, 2012 :
I live in a fixed income. (1,500,00 U.S.) a month. Will that be enough to live an average live style in Israel? Not luxuries, just a down to earth live style. Thanks for your help.....
in HIM,
William.....
