    1. Shop around and negotiate. Always compare prices when spending anything substantial (car and home insurance, renovations, etc). 2. Be very wary of the Welfare department (revacha) they are filled with too many employees (social workers and child protection officers) and they are very eager to fund cases of abuse by parents in order to justify their jobs. If Revacha ever calls you for an investigation it is imperative you film the interview - make a complete record. There is no due process in welfare and they will lie and try to trick you. They are not there to help you. They thrive on anonymous reporting and try hard to scare children into reporting on parents. (like Stalin). 3. Try hard for your kids to befriend Israelis - while it may be easier short term they will suffer long term by not understanding the culture. Befriending Israelis will also improve their Hebrew skills. 4. Try to move into mixed areas (not anglo ghettos) this will help your kids make Israeli friends and will help you and your spouse make adult Israeli friends so you will learn places to buy things and other opportunities that you will not have sticking with other immigrants who themselves dont know things . Its all worthwhile and Israel is a wonderful country. Just steer clear from the Revacha social workers. they are a relic of Israel's socialist past and are a pernicious organization which should be overhauled.
