If you choose to make Aliyah to Beit Shemesh, you’re moving to one of the most popular destinations for English speakers. Most US residents who move to Israel appreciate the Beit Shemesh area, as about 20% of the city’s residents speak English as their first language, however, certain areas tout a much higher percentage! The city of Beit Shemesh has a population of about 80,000 and is located in the beautiful hilly location about 20 miles west of Jerusalem. With a unique elevation of 718 feet, there tend to be hotter summers and milder winters than in the capital.
One of the most important aspects of relocating to Israel pertains to shipping your personal belongings. We highly recommend that you spend a few moments on Kef International’s Do’s and Don’s of Shipping page, where you’ll find valuable information regarding the following:

Take advantage of the Tax-free item list to maximize on your shipment and leave off any items from your list that require taxes to be paid on them if they are not necessities. Kef’s specialists have put together a terrific resource filled with advice on making Aliyah a more seamless and comfortable process. Please take a minute to read through what many Olim consider necessities for relocating to Israel:
Adopt an attitude of patience and tolerance. For Olim, nothing comes easy, but all good things come in time. The bureaucracy involved in moving to Israel demands a greater sense of patience than you may be accustomed to.
Keep your sense of humor, even in times when it may be difficult. Real Olim live by the mindset that frustration and difficulty can be overcome with a humorous attitude.
Make Israel your new home and avoid referring to ‘back there’ as home. Make new friends and adoptive families to ensure that you’re not lonely for life back where you came from.
An important aspect of life in Israel is for residents to go on Tiyulim, or mini-vacations, which may include hikes, explorations, small holidays away from home and such enjoyable adventures. Adopting the true Israeli culture can ensure that you discover all there is to love about Israel.
