I hope to get to a TR but in case I don't, I will post tidbits along the way.

We had a very solid dinner last night in Tel Aviv last night at Armondo, adjacent to Park Plaza. Nothing unique but solid Israeli meat place. Love the salads. Fair pricing. Rabbanut IIRC.

Anyone know anything about Rabanut Mehadrin Modiin?  Was planning on possibly ordering some Holy Bagel from there... anyone ever look into it?

Just did the new  VR exhibit at the  Kosel.  Don't think it's open to public yet.  It's  15min long and small  audiences at a time (20 tops)  pretty cool and informative.

Best option in Jerusalem is paying a hotel to use their business lounge.
