Meal, inexpensive restaurant - bruh, I can get a shwarma laffa for 24 shek right now, what is this 60 NIS shite
Rent - if you're paying more than 2,000 NIS for a one bedroom in Haifa, you're either in a really trendy/anglo spot or you're just plain overpaying. I have a new building, 2 bedrooms w/ private mamad and I pay 2500.
Preschool - Who on earth would pay 2,700 NIS a month for daycare? After state subsidy you pay max 2,000 NIS unless you're rich or don't know how to apply for the subsidy. I'm a two income family making approx 50,000 USD/year and we pay around 1,800 NIS.

The only thing on here that seems close to accurate is the average monthly salary.

These are not spot on lol, almost everything on here is substantially inflated. Any anglo site in general is going to have higher prices as anglos always pay more for the same stuff the rest of us get on the cheap

Prices are pretty spot on. Remember that income is calculated at average and not at median. If you do not work in hi-tec you can expect to earn about 6500.
