L'Chaim (to Life)

 

     How to live a long, healthy, Jewish life? Well, according to all of the most recent studies, if you are Jewish the best thing to do is to move to Israel and daven (pray) with a minyan (quorum).

     Japan has the world's highest average life expectancy—nearly 84 years—followed by Switzerland, Singapore, Australia, and Spain. Israel came in sixth. Israelis (Jews and Arabs) can expect an average lifespan of 82.5 years—80.6 for men and 84.3 for women, according to WHO. Jewish Israelis' average lifespan is noticeably higher than the Arabs living in Israel. So Jewish Israelis can expect to live even longer than the average 82.5 years, within the top few countries in the world!

     Also, current research finds a link between attending religious services and a lower risk of death from all causes.

     So if living a long, healthy, Jewish life is one of your goals, it's simple. Move to Israel and go to shul.

     Welcome home.
