What's the best place to go to for two day runaway on Chanukah, mainly weather wise etc.

South would be best...Weather is supposed to be really rough Tuesday afternoon-end of Chanuka.

I stayed with my wife at Kibbutz Lavi and we enjoyed the food and they have a large selection. This was last year.

Any recent data points on crowne Plaza Jerusalem?
Going Solo for two weeknights, not Shabbos. It seems to be the only jlem points option open to me, but I don't want to stay in a dump.
For comparison purposes, the litov and prima palace were fine for me in the past.

seems a step up from leonardo plaza in terms of luxury, but leo has a stricter kosher supervision. has a nicer heated pool, and recently updated rooms, but generally costs more than leo. a few minutes longer walk to western wall.

Going to Israel for a week in about a week. Trying to figure out the pros and cons of renting a car vs taxis. Not going to travel much but to and from the airport and one day up north and bnei brak on the way back to the airport.
Would also like to go to Kever rachel, Har Hazeisim and Mearas Hamachpeila. Any insight on this is greatly appreciated. Haven't been there in over a decade.

Where will you be based out of? If Yerushalayim then the last three are accessible by bus

based out of Yerushalaim.
Does it make sense to just rent a car for the day to go up north?

Depends on what you want to do- if going only to one place then returning, a driver might be OK. Public buses very economical. If you want flexibility and going to several places and are comfortable driving then renting would be fine. Car rentals, especially smaller cars, are not that expensive and likely far less costly than a driver.

On the other hand, hiring someone who knows his way around can easily save you a couple of hours and allow you to get much more done.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I have rented for a few days to do similar to what you want to visit. I like the freedom of going and coming when I want so a car rental works for me.
