Your NameLetters sent airmail will take approximately ten days to two weeks to arrive from North America to Israel and vice versa. However, people associated with the College often go back and forth to the States and are usually willing to take mail with them. Therefore, remember to bring American, or Canadian, stamps.

We recommend that students and their dear ones compare telephone costs in Israel with costs in the United States or Canada. You may find that a call from Israel to North America using an Israeli provider is cheaper than a direct-dialed call from North America.
In Israel, you may use a Phone Card or dial collect at:
177-100-2727 (AT&T) or
177-150-2727 (MCI) or
177-105-2727 (Canada Direct)
Helpful hint: Make sure you know how to operate your electronic equipment and e-mail software before you arrive. Bring instructions.
