Hod Hasharon

Hod Hasharon, a city in the southern Sharon region, was founded in 1964 when several small farming villages were unified into one city. It retains a feeling of a Moshava with lots of parks and even some orchards. This upscale city has a population which is mostly traditional and secular, while there is also a small Orthodox community.

“I loved the country atmosphere, high quality people, greenery and central proximity. we have a very active circle of Native English Speakers and many of us are friends. Also a lot of the Israelis who live here have either lived abroad, or traveled extensively, or work in high-tech, so English is never a problem. [There are] Loads of outdoor parks, a lake and a huge sporting facility with free skateboarding park, gym, football grounds etc. Also beautiful walks.” – Lisa Brink

LOCAL RESOURCES

Parents obviously look for the best possible school for their children. Coming to Israel, you will have to look at specific details of the school’s educational approach, values, resources for Olim, religious level, and/or costs. NBN recommends reading a few articles on our website, specifically How to Choose a School in Israel: Guide to the Perplexed , and then exploring options in our School Database.
