Let's say Machpood, eidah chareidus, she'eris, landua bnei brak or rubin
Where did skyline fit into there?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

How much is it?
Bein Hazmanim at 7000 shekel per night. Other parts of the summer are relatively available at 3,000 shekel per night. Weekends at 3,500 per night.
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

A little off topic just wasn't sure where to post.

Got a ticket for driving in the bus lane with a tus-tus
Registerd on my brothers name
I gave them my brothers passport #
So on the ticket it says my name and my NY DL # but my brothers passport number.

Do I have to pay the ticket? Meaning can/will they connect to dots?
If yes would paying online 1 nis work?
update, ticket shows up online says my name, in the notes ut says the license plate number of the bike but it's missing the first 2 numbers..  does that mean it's not even on the bike?

Going to be in Israel for a week at the end of the month. Landing on a Tuesday, departing the following Monday. I'm looking to spend most of my time in ירושלים, but want to spend some time (not more than 1 night) somewhere warmer. Any ideas where would be nice? Was thinking dead sea possibly. I'll be with DW and 1 yo son. TIA.

Fyi it's pretty warm in Jerusalem these days. Though nights are a little cold.

Hmmm. What's pretty warm? Son goes to sleep early, so not really going out much at night.

In the 50's during the day. Coat if you want... Giyf. But the dead sea is def warmer. Find out if the water's warm enough to go inside.

Thanks. I'm just not the biggest fan of the dead sea area, but that might be what I'll do.

I would guess your closest would be Shaarei Chesed.

Found this online.  Don't know if the time is up to date.  I believe there is a morning shiur in english as well, don't have any details.

Pretty sure they have wifi, if that's what you're asking
