I am not sure about renting from Jerusalem, but I am going to Israel for Sukkot as well. With my President's club status on Avis, I was able to book a car from 10/12 - 10/22 for $203 (a class F might I add) and then called them for a $50 off coupon. So all in all, I will be paying approx. $15/day including taxes for unlimited miles and a mazda 6 in Israel, which is considered a big car for Israel. I hope this helps!
I have nothing witty to write here....

Wait till you see what the final price is with damage and theft protection. You're in for a rude surprise.

You do realize that insurance is MANDATORY in Israel. LI if you have WMC, TP & CDW if you don't. What's the total after those?

It will depend on the rate you got, but AFAIK LI on a F is a minimum of $17 per day

The best experience (and price) that i had was actually making my reservations through an American travel agency. For some reason they seem to have much better rates then i was able to find including using the "Car Rental Corporate Codes Roundup" thread. The agency I went through now has a branch here in Yerushalayim too. Their numbers are 718-338-0417 in the states, and 02-582-7646 in Yerushalayim. They will also give you the full price including insurance (and tax if applicable).

While I understand that LI may be expensive, having the price start so low helps offset the cost of the LI....
