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?

Makes sense since the train is sitting and waiting there for 10 minutes before it actually leaves. So if you get there 10 minutes before and start davning....

Id assume they'll see everything when you go to extend it and have the same issues.
What ended up happening? usually when they give you 1 month it is because you have overstayed a 3 month tourist visa in the past, and/or they have reason to suspect that you are a really not a tourist. Speaking from lots of (old) experience.

Has anyone ever done a shuk tour? Is it worth the time and money? Where did you book it? How much did it cost?
Thanks!

We are looking for a  place in the old city/Mamilla area to have a small (around 20 people) bas mitzvah dinner. Does anyone have recommendations?
