Ton of information to process so far. Appreciate all the help. I have a good source for the Christian sites. Will start making up a short list and see if it is doable.
Yad Vashem world renown Holocaust Museum is on the list. After our trip to Auschwitz last year this seems like a must.
It would probably be easier for you if you work on a map schedule. There is basically the
north which you'd want to split between the east and west ( Total of 3 day should suffice )

Dead Sea area which is basically a day depending on how you do it  ( EinGedi, Massada )

Center of the country Jerusalem, tlv ( a list can be found all above )


The rest of stuff you cover while traveling.

Great start.

I'd also add:
-Jerusalem on Shabbos
-Ramparts walk in Jerusalem
-Blind museum and Palmach museum in TLV
-Banias, Nimrods Fortress, Har Bental, Jordan river rafting, and other Golan Heights sites
-Tzfat

There are probably better forums than this one to find the Christian sights to see though...
I would add that if you haven't experienced a Shabbos meal, you should try and get invited to one.

I'm sure many here would be glad to host JTZ for a Shabbos meal. YT would be more complicated though.

And TLV is also not in Tel Aviv.
Talking about metro area.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

IINM they are supposed to be merging some municipalities around Tel-Aviv into a single municipality with Tel-Aviv. Not sure if Holon is part of that. But in any event I think Dan was right in referring to the metro area, as the boundaries between municipalities are totally arbitrary, if not historical, at this point. It is all one huge contiguous residential and business area.
