Iwas born in Poland and came here after the war. The biggest change would have to be the commitment to help Medinat Yisrael. Jews have always aided Israel but it seems more organized and frequent now.
We didn’t have bikur cholim when I was growing up and kosher food was not available in hospitals.
We didn’t have alternate parking on Shabbos and the holidays like we do now. I also feel that religious observance is stronger now, as can be seen by the mechitzas and separate seating at almost every event.
