Yeah which directions are taking you on the 6? The 1 to the 90 is way to go, you will going to Yerushalyim first, then taking the 90.
On the 90 dont take any shortcuts though, if I am correct a lot of places off the 90 are Arab Neighborhoods.
+1 but there aren't any shortcuts. The 90 goes straight south.

+1 . I was in there the other day. Looks like it'll be a nice place bit yes very tight. I think shefa bracha is really maayan in another form and the owner want to hit up the honeymooners on paran. My speculation is based on the sign you see the same wagon motto as maayan. I cam totally be wrong though

Firstly let me clarify one point. I live on paran and I'm married almost 2 years and I'm one of the newbies.
Also that symbol is used everywhere in Israel. I think super in arzei is using that soon as well
