Go-coast is a volunteer program managed by North Coast ESRA. It was created by olim, for olim. It is for those who have chosen to make aliyah to the north coast of Israel. This includes the Qrayot (Krayot), Ako, Nahariya, Ma'alot and the borderline area (Shlomi, Rosh haNikra, et al).
I am pleased to announce the removal of one of our pages. I am usually pleased to tell you about something we have added (not removed) so this is quite unusual.
The "Anglo-Friendly Businesses" page is gone. Simply put, it is no longer needed - not that people don't need to have access to that type of information, but rather because there is a better source.
Jason Frank, of Karmiel, has created an English website exclusively dedicated to reviews (both good and bad) of Israeli businesses. There is absolutely no reason for Go-Coast to continue in this vein, when Jason's site, CHEESE LEWEEZE, does it so much better. The site has a business category list on the right side of the page, which is one way to search for reviews. Also, if you go to the sitemap you will find a list of tags. The tags list includes names of some cities (Nahariya, for instance), so this is another way you can search for reviews. Please check it out; I think you will like it. Also, please support the effort by remembering to post your reviews there in the future. We have added a link to Cheese Leweeze, under our Misc. Links List, so you will always be able to get to the site from here.
If you previously posted a review here, or you read one and wanted to review it for more details, don't worry; the reviews are still available online. They can all now be found at Jason Frank's site: http://www.cheeseleweeze.com/
P.S. I have invited Jason to write an article for this blog, so hopefully you will see something from him here on Go-Coast in the not too distant future.
