If you haven’t done Hevron before I strongly suggest doing the tour on the bus that goes to kever rahel and Hevron.  Go to the Hevron website and book the tour with Rav simcha Hockbaum of Hevron.  You will not regret it.  Book early as it fills up.  A real treat.
As for ir David, you can do it yourself piecemeal but it pays to do the compkete three hour tour.
hope not old. pager - 0524317257. office 0524317055. He's great!

Thanks.  I hear he's great,  but at $50 a person,  i can't do $300 even for a great tour.

How do i get the tour at ir david?  When i show up,  book in advanced...? If its 3 hours - can kids handle it?

I would sign up for ir david online if possible since it can sell out in the summer.  The three hour tour includes a 3d show and the walk through the dark water tunnel that really excites the kids.  The rest of the tour’s interest depends on the guide and the age and interest of the kids.  Check out also some of the other tours from ir david on line especially the sifting project that really interests the kids and is inexpensive last time I looked.
As for Hevron, I understand about the cost.  All buses are protected.  We have been going for years and my daughters lived in kiryat arba and walked down or got rides all the time but we are familiar with the area.  With kids and first time I would suggest going with a tour or at a minimum a person with experience going there.  See if there is contact info for Rav Simcha, explain there are three kids, maybe a discount is possible.  Sorry, I don’t have his contact info offhand.  If I was going I would offer to show you around for free.  It is an amazing placeˇ. The people who live there are incredible.

Is there a general israel master thread? like israel news, israel advertising, etc?
i'm posting this here, if there's a better place for it, please feel free to move it, and sorry for posting in wrong thread  :-[

Avromi Rubin, one of the best computer technicians I know in Israel, is now a retailer as well.  Sells laptops, computers, etc.  His prices are great, and where he really sticks out are the installations/setup (if you choose to do so).  Israeli stores here boast their low prices (which almost always are the same as Rubin), but (I can tell you from experience), butcher Windows installs (and other software).  Unfortunately, the sad reality is that an extremely minor percentage of Israeli technicians really know what they're doing.  Obviously, I only know the ones I know, but between being in at least 3 telegram groups of Israeli technicians, and seeing many computers a month, I can honestly say that its not even close to a professionally acceptable job.  So, if you're looking to buy a PC or Laptop here, you finally have a reliable place to go!!



See more here.

P.S. Yes, he is a friend of mine; No, I do not profit from his sales.  I actually profit from the bad Israeli installs that I get to fix :)

Try the Bransdorfer apartments in Geulah.  They run from 75 - 95 for one or, two bedrooms. Very basic, no amenities (NO internet connection) but comfortable and IMO, in a perfect location. 

To the person above regarding Rabbi Simcha Hochbaum.  The website is https://www.hebronfund.org/tours/.  I would suggest at least reaching out to him.  My guess is something can be worked out.  The website does say "$250 per immediate family (this family discount is offered for parents visiting with more than three paying children between the ages of 6 and 20)."
