”One of the world’s most exciting and vibrant cities”

Hi,

My name is Baruch, I’m 35 years old and I was born in and live in Israel.

Yes, Israel! You probably are imagining that I live in the desert, ride a camel while holding an M-16 and battling hundreds of Arabs, but that’s not quite my life.

I live in Tel Aviv, one of the world’s most exciting and vibrant cities, where I manage a clothing store in a shopping mall located in the city centre.  I look and dress just like anyone in Europe or the U.S.  I live with my partner, we’ve been together for 12 years – I’m gay and that is totally accepted in Israel. In fact, Tel Aviv is considered one of the ten best gay-friendly cities in the world!

Tel Aviv is ranked third in the world for the number of bars per capita, as well as for the number of sushi restaurants! The Tel Aviv beaches are gorgeous and amazing and are packed during the summer months – even during the winter, sometimes, when the temperature hits 20°C.

So, when are you coming to visit us? I can promise you’ll have an amazing time. I’d be happy to show you around!

Best,

Baruch
