On International Women's Day, we'd like to take a moment to honor some of the Israeli women who inspire us, and let me tell you, there are so many. Israel is overflowing with people who are achieving incredible things in all fields. Whether it's in business, politics, entertainment, philanthropy, or just life in general, these girls are doing it right! If we listed them all, you'd be here for a very long time, so here are a handful of Israeli women to get you inspired to do the things you dream of.
She's 28 years old, making her the youngest member of Knesset (parliament). She started her political career by initiating a protest about the high cost of living in Israel which became Israel's biggest-ever social protest.
Do we need to introduce her? The Wonder Woman star is doing us proud. The movie is the biggest live action box office hit by a female director, and to date has made over 800 million at the box office.

She's 30 years ol
Remember Jonathan Lipnicki, that cute little kid from Stuart Little, with spiky blonde hair and round glasses? You know who I'm talking about, he starred in many of our old-school movie favorites, including Jerry Maguire. Dr DoLittle and Like Mike. He is the kid who made me want a rodent for a sibling, and that my friend, requires talent!
Skip ahead a few good years, and he's kept the same charming smile, lost the glasses, and packed on some muscle. His talent for acting is still keeping him as busy as ever, with various new releases this year, but in his free time he's having epic adventures with us. Yup, you read that right. Jonathan recently went on a Birthright Israel trip run by Sachlav | IsraelontheHouse, and we had the chance to sit down with him and ask him a few questions.
As far as celebrities go, Lipnicki is far from what you would expect. Saying he's “down-to-earth” would be an understatement. He was extremely personable, fun, outgoing, and definitel

More than 500 000 people have been on a free trip to Israel and how many are guilty of the same 10 amateur mistakes made on Birthright Israel? Honestly, we'd rather not know. Instead, we've compiled a list to help you, the future traveler from making the same "Birthright Blunders".
1. Shaving before swimming in the Dead Sea
Dipping your face of freshly shaved set legs in the Dead Sea is kind of like taking an acid bath - it'll give you a sting you'll never forget. While we're talking about "the sting", we also strongly advise that you never attempt putting your head under water in the Dead Sea. Even if your eyes are closed, "the sting" still finds its way in, and you will reemerge convinced that you have been permanently blinded.
2. Falling "in love" too soon
A lot can happen in 10 days, and a lot can change. Someone catches your eye on the first day, and by day 4 you've noticed they're a perpetual nose-picker. Avoid the awkwardness, keep things in t
1. How to use your phone abroad and avoid roaming fees
To put it simply, roaming is evil. It will cost you a fortune, so turn it off now. Even if you don't pickup the phone, you will be charged.
Step 1: To turn off roaming
On iOS, go to Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Options and slide Data Roaming to OFF.
On Samsung, go to Settings > Connections > Data Usage > International Data Roaming and uncheck International Data.
Step 2: Put your phone on Airplane Mode and turn your Wifi on
Once you've done this, you can safely avoid fees back home. If you would like to use your phone for calls, and more frequently than just when you have access to free wifi, we suggest you get a local sim card.
*FYI Sachlav has access to the cheapest all inclusive sim card plan for Birthright Israel participants, if you're coming on a trip with us, make sure you take advantage of this perk.
2. How to find amazing local food wherever you travel
