Birth Right Israel will give you an enriching site seeing experience. But we can’t deny the eclectic shopping experience that can be had on your Birth Right Israel trip
Israel has economic ties with almost every country in the world including manufacture and consumer products. This means that you’re not only exposed to authentic Israeli goods, but you can purchase imported items that can’t be found in your home country.
There are countless opportunities for shopping in Israel in the shopping centres that have sprung up in the past few decades – including the Malkha Mall, the largest in the Middle East.
Many travellers find the colourful markets, annual bazaars, street malls, and hole-in-the-wall shops the most fascinating of all. Here you can find goods from spices to jewellery and other attractive imported and locally-made items.
Most stores are open from Sunday to Thursday between 9 in the morning and 7 in the evening. Stores that close for a break between 2 and 4 in the afternoon have a sign with their hours posted on the door. In some cities, stores are closed on Tuesday afternoons.
Many stores close at midday on Friday and open again on Sunday morning. Stores close in the mid-afternoon on the eve of Jewish holidays and remain closed throughout the holiday.
