    • Akko - Cars in the old city

      Akko 17 hours ago

      I understand that I cannot drive in the old city of Akko. Can I leave a car outside of the old city, with luggage in it, while visiting the old city? Will there be a problem with theft? Will there be a problem with Israeli security not liking cars sitting around with unattended luggage?

    • How to plan little free time in Israel

      Israel Dec 31, 2014 at 8:46 AM

      I would need help in planning a very little free time I will have on my trip to Israel. I will be stationed in Haifa. All that I will have available is one evening after 18.00 and then from Thursday 19.00 till Saturday 18.00 (Sabbath...), when my plane takes off.
      Any suggestions would be really welcome. I would prefer to see Christian sites like Church of the Holy Sepulchre or Betlehem (where I could also maybe get a glimpse of the Arab culture).

      How safe is it to travel to Betlehem or spend a night there?
      Would it make sense (especially on safety grounds) to leave Haifa at 19.00 and travel to Betlehem or Jerusalem (that could maximise my tour time on the following day)?
      Is it really necessary to come to the airport full 3h before the flight?

      Any itinerary ideas greatly appreciated.

      Jerusalem Nov 2, 2014 at 1:14 AM

      I am travelling to Jenin on Friday for the annual olive harvest festival. I am travelling from Damascus Gate in Jerusalem. I understand how to get to the festival (bus 18 to ramallah, shared taxi to Jenin, and then a private taxi to the site). However, my question is, how do I get back to Jerusalem after the festival (it ends at 8pm)? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Buying a Tallit

      Jerusalem Jun 10, 2014 at 1:13 AM

      Funny question, but can anyone tell me where you think the best place is to purchase a Tallit? Every other store seems to sell them, but we'd like a good quality, simple Tallit, actually 2, one large and one smaller (the ones that look like shawls). Mea Shearim, perhaps, but what store? Or the Old City? Same question.

      Thanks much.
