Just arrived in Haifa as an oleh Chadash.
The prices are pretty close to what we have. Milk for a 3% is the same at 5.60 per litre. Rentals aren't a true reflection. However downtown rents are lower. Depending on the area you choose uptown is at a premium. The rentals out of city centre are not lower. Prices have remained the same. Think about your standard of living and budget carefully. Do not join the trend and live on credit. The transport system is so good use it. Don't spend money on a car/bike. Insurance and bank charges will kill you.

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
