I am speechless at all the wonderful gifts that are available through Israel-Catalog. I have made 2 orders and they've been arriving in a timely manner to my home in Philadelphia all the way from Israel. The items are in great condition. Both my mother & I have been using these wonderful products and needless to say that my mother is so excited & happy! I think in our hearts & soul we really feel closer to Israel more than before! And it's such a wonderful feeling - feeling the love of the Creator through his nation of Israel in this special online company from Israel. I'd like to mention how helpful the customer service is - answering my questions, assisting me, etc. I'm really thankful for everything. Thank you so much! Michele from Philadelphia, PA USA
