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)

air france most likely won't  let him on because they would get fined by israel for letting him fly

Suggestions for a place for WEEKDAY davening near the Leonardo Plaza?

Yes, I know that I'm close to the Kotel, and yes I know there are more shuls than people in this area, but I thought I would ask if someone could recommend something "modern orthodox" "nusach Ashkenaz" and welcoming of Anglos.

For example, I'm familiar with Mayanot (yes, I know it's Chabad nusach etc.), which I like. I see they have 0800 shacharit but website doesn't list mincha/maariv.

I'm also familiar with the shtibelach shul in Katamon -- The Minyan Factory. 

Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

The Gr"a shul in Shaarei Chesed is nusach Ashkenaz and every one is welcome. Stream of orthodox depends on the minyan, most are cholent. There are some other minyanim around, take a walk down there and ask someone speaking English who looks your type.
