Ice Hockey Fans Have a Place in Israel
Toronto it’s not, but Metulla’s Canada Centre provides a cool venue for immigrant and native Israelis thirsting for fast-paced fun on the ice.

It’s not a sport normally associated with the Middle East, but for Israel’s many Russian and Canadian immigrants, ice hockey is part of their culture. And they’re willing to drive for hours to maintain it.
