The story of Israel Xpress started in 2013 when I came on the Israel XP gap year program at Bar Ilan University. After an amazing year exploring, learning, and making life-long connections, I continued my Israel experience learning in Yeshiva and drafting into the Israeli Army where I served as a combat soldier in the tanks division. After the army, I returned to the world of gap year programs and became a madrich on the Israel XP program for three years. I loved being around the students and helping them with whatever they needed. When Covid hit in 2020, the new students coming to Israel had to quarantine and required a lot of products, while stuck in their dorm rooms. In order to help them, I created an online store dedicated to serving the needs of those students.
Israel Xpress has since expanded to serve the needs of gap year students, chayalim bodedim, and olim all over Israel. Our mission is to remove the stress and challenge of purchasing in Israel and offer an easy-to-use, online store with fast delivery across Israel. We pride ourselves on excellent English-speaking customer service and being a top source for imported American food and beverage products in Israel.
