and found peole at first very friendly. Almost too friendly with fixed smiles. We were invited out almost every week and we were always asked, "are you buying here in Aviv".. After about 6 months we told a few people we were not renewing and were moving to Modiin. Wow what a change!!. Suddenly, there were NO invites at all. We ate alone for about half a year. We actually invited back about 8 families who had us over and none of them could make it. They basically shut us out. Suddenly, play dates vanished and my kids were stuck in the house all the time. All in all I found some very nice people but overall I think Nofei Aviv is kind of a strange community - like The Stepford Wives community (movie from the 70s).
