Metric Measurements of Common Household Items for your Home in Israel

Hebrew:  מידות של ריהוט וחפצים ביתיים

 

Unless your apartment or house has been designed or built according to your specifications, most Israeli apartments and homes will probably have smaller rooms than you are used to.  A comfortable 3 bedroom apartment may only be around 100 m².   An average bedroom is between 8 - 10 m²

Before you pack, you will have to decide if your furniture and household items are appropriate in size for the average Israeli apartment or if you need to downsizeCheck out our floor plan of a typical Israeli apartment.

If your decide to buy new appliances, furniture and linens to ship to Israel, we suggest you reference this list of measurements and dimensions before you make your purchases.  Liaise with the agent  who is coordinating your Aliyah shipment to determine the required container size - 6 meters or 12 meters.

Aliyah Tip

It is generally advisable to purchase small electrical appliances in Israel rather than shipping them from your country of origin.  Most warranties are not valid outside the country they were originally purchased in.  Be aware of the main power differences between North America and Israel.  America & Canada use 110, other countries have the same power supply – 220 volts (60 Hz).
