      Tour to Istanbul

      Israel Mar 24, 2015 at 6:43 PM

      Hi! I'm going to be in Israel for about 3 weeks starting on April 26th. We plan to go for 3 or 4 days to Istanbul at some point.

      My wife was there about 10 years ago and she remembers buying a package that included flight and hotel, really cheap. She bought it directly in Israel.

      Does anyone know if those kind of packages still exist? If so, who sells them and how much are they approximately?

      2. - the great Tlomackie St. Synagogue, Warsaw.
      3. -Dura Ehropos, 245 AD on Euphrates in northern Syria
      4. - Great Portuguese synagogue, Amsterdam 1675.
      5. - Beth Shalom synagogue, Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, 1954
      6. - Second century AD synagogue in Sardis, Turkey. First built as a secular basilica
      7. - synagogue of Kaifeng, China, 1163 rebuilt 1653
      8. - interior of 'Ibu Dannan' synagogue, Fez. Mid-17th century
      9. - Rashi chapel, Worms, an annex to the ancient synagogue of 1034
      10. - Altneuschul, Jewish quarter, Prague. Built 1270.
      11. - Moorish style synagogue, Toledo c. 1200. Later turned into Sta Maria la Blanca church.
      12. - Rabbi Shemuel Ha'Levi Abulafia Synagogue, Toledo after 1492 turned into El Transito Church.
      Can someone help me complete this list with the six missing synagogues pleas? Stefan

      Best area to stay

      Jerusalem Mar 7, 2015 at 7:18 PM

      Hi! I'm going to Jerusalem with my wife and 2yr old son at the end of April. I've never been there so I'm a bit lost regarding location.

      What is a good area to stay at? What is the "difference" between the West and East Jerusalem? Would you stay in/near the old city?

      Thanks for the help!

      Going to Massada with an Israeli rented car?

      Jerusalem Mar 12, 2015 at 6:43 AM

      As far as I found out, the best way to go to Massada national park from Jerusalem will lead through Westbank by taking route nr. 1 to the dead sea and follow its bank via route nr. 90 to Massada....

      Is it allowed to go this route with a car rented from an Israeli company? When I get it right, I will not leave Israeli controlled area (Zone C), so the car should be still insured?

      Will I have to pass check-points/border stations on this route? Or are they only between the zones A and B and Isreali controlled areas?

    • The safety situation in Tel Aviv

      by Findian Online Now Aug 22, 2014 at 12:11 PM

      We have booked flights to Tel Aviv on October and booked an apartment close to the beach area. We are travelling with small children and are a bit worried about the safety situation. Running into the bombshells would not be a holiday memory that I would like to share with our daughters age of 6 and 8.

      What is the situation at the moment and is there still alarms on a daily basis? If we still choose to come to Israel, is there other areas close to Tel Aviv that have a lesser risk (such as Herzliya, Netanya)? Our flights are to/from Ben Gurion.
