I understand that they do Boruch as the train pulls out of the station

Thanks!  Such bekius in the forums - very impressive.

Does anyone know if there is regularly a minyan (with a sefer Torah?) on any of the first trains out of Yitzchak Navon in the morning?

We just did the Imax and thought it was good. Our guide didn't even suggest doing the museum. I think that with kids that certainly is the right plan.

So subjective...
I like Rimon but ask three and get five answers...

If really a student for a couple semesters? Or is the issue living there or working there?

Hmmm
Already has a legitimate ticket to leave Israel 5 days later. Problem is that current visa expires in 3 days...and absolutely cannot risk being marked as overstaying B2 because must be back in country later this year for an extended period of time. So only need a few days extension. I guess it's not a sure thing one will get any extension.

Thanks for all that information - and I take from it that you personally have done this. The question for the visa is not if one has already ovestayed but if very near the end of 3 months - does this start a new 90 day clock or do they consider it as if you never left since you only went to Taba?

Anyone care to comment on recent experience going over the border from Eilat for one night to Taba to stay at a Taba hotel?  I see there's an Egged bus from the city to the border but what then? Any border fees? How much time does it take to cross the border? How is getting from border to the hotel and back?  Any problems bringing tefilin and a tallis? Any safety issues? Do they give you a new tourist visa when returning to Israel with 90 more days? Any issues crossing at night? Thanks

They are essentially the same hotel and share facilities. It's worth a call to them to see if you can switch it.

We made a point to get a room in the newest building. IIRC they built one a new one in the adult only hotel and redid the others. The new ones are nicer. But I've stayed in the renovated rooms and they were ok - just not as nice.

Yeah, we got a butler suite (can't remember if it was Ziva or Zilara). Nice comfortable room and having the Butler service was a big bonus when it came to dealing with the Kosher issue (not to say that they didn't make a number of mistakes and cost us a bunch of our food...)

Yes, I'd say so.

You can go to Kastners on 41st st - with normal traffic it is less than 15 minutes. There are a couple of other options there but this one is one stop for everything.
