Activities

Jerusalem Area

Begin Museum- outside the Old City
Caliber 3- Shooting Range in Gush Etzion
Ramparts Walk- on top of the Old City walls
Kotel Tunnel Tours
Time Elevator in Jerusalem- Don't waste your time.
City of David (Ir David)-Amazing-you must take a tour to fully understand the site.
Segway tour-interesting way to waste a few hrs-NOT an absolute must do


Tel Aviv/Center

Blind or Deaf Museum in Cholon- Blind, amazing. Deaf, good. Prior reservation needed.
Hagana Museum in Tel Aviv--15NIS per adult; students free; a bit disjointed and kind of fake acting in the videos, but mostly very interesting and educational.
Bullet Factory in Rechovot
Mini Israel- Love it or hate it

North

Rosh Hanikra- Way up north

Golan Heights

Tel Dan nature reserve (similiar to Banias Waterfall -slightly easier & toddler friendly)
Banias Waterfall

1. sheyan on ramban st (asian fusion)
2. keyara also on ramban
3. primavera in the leonardo
4. entrecote in har chotzvim

5. el gaucho in ramat gan

Another vote for Keyara! we ate there and were very impressed, one of the nicest dining experiences I ever had. Top notch service, great food and wine selection. We were 6 people and had appetizers + main dishes which included a few steaks, wine and desserts for about 1100 or so Shekel.

maybe they were all following the one am haoretz. all the restaurant websites i checked say its regular rabanut which is very bad. in all my years living here and the numerous times ive been to tiveriya not once did i hear of anyone i know that ate there. it just wasnt an option for a reliable place to eat in tiveria. frankly, i never even heard of the place until now and i pretty know of every place in israel (reliable of course) as im a restaurant kinda guy

So what's with Papagaio?
I've asked a bunch of people, most say it's fine and any issues that there may have been have been corrected but others say OU mehadrin in Israel just isn't all that great.
The OU says that their Israel standards are just as strict as their standards in the US are.

i spoke to the new head of ou, i was satisfied with what he told me, and i ate there (he mentioned that r' belsky recently ate there too). if you go, you have to get the "brazillian table", its quite an experience. if you want i can email you a 10% off coupon.
