The use of kosher glue for stamps in Israel is a testament to the country's deep-rooted commitment to religious and cultural practices.

4. Love to dancing 

Jews are inherently free-spirited people. Freedom holds great significance for them, and they deeply cherish it. Perhaps dancing is their expression of freedom because Jews love dancing so much that they can spontaneously start dancing in the middle of the street while walking home. Within minutes, several passersby join them, and soon enough, a lively dance unfolds. In my opinion, it's a wonderful example to emulate, symbolizing the freedom of spirit and the lightness of being.

6. Creative Stop road sign 

The choice of Israelis to use a hand-shaped "Stop" sign instead of the conventional worldwide sign was not arbitrary. The reason behind it lies in the fact that if you read the word "stop" spelled backward in Latin letters, it becomes an indecent word in Hebrew. This leads to the question of why not write the word in Hebrew instead. However, due to not everyone in Israel being familiar with the language, they opted for an optimal solution by depicting a hand on the road sign. This creative solution serves as a clear visual cue that signifies the need to halt or pause, regardless of language barriers or linguistic differences.

7. Kosher McDonald's

Kosher McDonald's, you read it correctly. Indeed, in some cities in Israel, you can find McDonald's restaurants with kosher certification. This means that they meet the dietary requirements set by Jewish religious laws. Only products that have undergone special kosher certification and are prepared according to kosher standards are used in such establishments. This allows Jewish visitors to enjoy McDonald's meals while adhering to their religious dietary restrictions.

8. Peanut snacks

Peanut snacks are highly popular among Israelis. Doctors even recommend giving them to children as young as 6 months. It is said that, as a result, peanut allergies are almost non-existent among Jewish children. This early introduction of peanuts is believed to protect against peanut allergies among Jewish children. Studies have shown that early and regular exposure to peanuts can help reduce the risk of developing allergies later in life. By gradually introducing peanuts at a young age, the immune system becomes more tolerant, and the likelihood of developing an allergic reaction decreases significantly.

12. Albert Einstein had the potential to become the President of Israel

This proposal was voiced to him by the then Prime Minister of the country, David Ben-Gurion, in 1952. Einstein was pleasantly surprised by such an interesting and tempting offer, but he took a pause to consider it carefully. After some time, he returned with his answer and, after weighing all the pros and cons, ultimately declined the position. According to his words, he had no political experience and did not have a strong grasp of these matters.

This innovative solution has proven to be highly effective in reducing the number of jellyfish encounters and minimizing the risks associated with their stings.

Recent scientific research has discovered pockets of freshwater on the seabed. Could it be that the prophecy is beginning to come true?

These experiences become deeply ingrained from early childhood and demonstrate a readiness to protect their family, and country, and take responsibility.

Family takes first place in the lives of Jewish people. Neither money nor a career can replace that position because everything is done for the sake of their loved ones.

And it's not surprising, as children are the continuation of the family legacy. In this photo, the children are dressed as Santa Claus, and all of them look incredibly cute and whimsical.

Nevertheless, if she decides to serve, she receives various privileges. For instance, she is eligible for a discount on education at a state university. It's worth noting that even during their military service, women do not lose their femininity and continue to actively take care of themselves during their free time. They prioritize self-care and maintain their personal interests and hobbies alongside their military duties.

24. Gay beach vs religious beach

Israel is a country of vivid contrasts. It is home to one of the largest LGBTQ communities in the world.

This is a very interesting nuance because both groups have to coexist in close proximity. Despite their proximity, people manage to peacefully coexist and find a way to live together.

In Israel, there is a unique practice when it comes to the sale of pork.

This labeling practice allows those who do consume pork to purchase it without drawing unnecessary attention or causing discomfort to those who abstain from eating it for religious or cultural reasons.
