The Big Felafel

How to find an apartment in Jerusalem and the rest of Israel

A list of the apartment websites that have been helpful to me and hopefully will continue to be helpful to others. If you have updates about these sites or new sites, leave me a comment.

1. Magar Meida (English and Hebrew): Daily email with latest listings. Costs roughly 250 shekels for 2 months. You can freeze the membership after you find an apartment. The fee is well worth it.

2. Flathunting (English)

3. Janglo – Real Estate section (English)

4. Yad2 (Hebrew)

5. Homeless (Hebrew)

6. Sheal (Hebrew)

7. Hebrew U. (Hebrew)

      most of the websites listed above also feature short term rentals. Good luck with your search. It might be a little too early to look still.

    So I am recently ordained and coming for an additional year at conservative yeshiva in Jerusalem. How do I know the flavor of a neighborhood, i.e., quiet, partying, younger, older, families, walking distance to coffee and groceries? Any advice is welcomed. Don’t want to exceed $1000/mo all included.
