Date: June 22, 2016

About 70 young Israelis gathered at the bar HaMaoz in Tel Aviv to hear Executive Director of the Taub Center, Avi Weiss, speak at an event entitled “How much does a beer cost? The socioeconomic condition of young adults in Israel.” The event, held in collaboration with WIZE, a movement to change youth culture and nightlife in Israel, opened with a general presentation on the Israeli economy and then walked through the stages in the life of every Israeli, from kindergarten through retirement. The audience was particularly interested in findings that related to the cost of living in Israel and the increase in housing and food prices in recent years, as well as in Taub Center graphs indicating that more young people are still living with their parents than in the past.
