I've been in Israel for a couple of months, and at first I would always get tripped up by two questions from the cashiers: The first is "Mo'adohn?", which refers to the club card for the store (we have the same thing in the US). Here they can be kind of pushy about it -- the cashier will often grill me about why I don't have one, but I can't get one because I'm not a citizen. The second question you'll get if you make a big purchase. They'll ask you how many payments you want to make. I don't fully understand this -- maybe someone Israeli can explain it. It seems like people pay for large purchases in complicated ways (part of the payment on one card, part on another, some cash). Hope that helps someone out there!
