Every tourist visiting Israel has had one of those ‘only in Israel’ moments. Whether it’s empty streets on Yom Kippur, the craziness that is the shuk during rush-hour on Friday afternoons or randomly bumping into an old friend at the Kotel. It’s one of those things you have to be Jewish to understand.

It’s no surprise that even the IKEAs in Israel are full of things you have to be Jewish to get.

These are some of the most Jewish things about IKEA in Israel that ‘just make sense’:
