Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Shabbos simcha in Yerushalayim
« on: January 19, 2020, 02:22:21 PM »
Looking to make a shabbos bar mitzvah this summer in Yerushalayim. Looking for a hotel that I can put up guests and have meals there as well. Ideally I would like something within walking distance to the kosel. Which hotel should I be looking into? (Waldorf will be too much)

Second option would be renting apartments and having it catered. Has anyone here done that & how did it work out?

TIA for any suggestions

Any way to transfer some those points and use them at a Disney Resort or other nice hotel?

Thanks in advance
