you can go to chof neve midbar for 50 nis at dead sea...only 30 min from jerusalem with no traffic or need to spend hour driving all the way down to ein bokek

no connection, but refael grill bar in tel aviv is highly recommended as well (machpud) best time is 7 as its empty and plenty of free parking right outside

Are there signs for Chof Neve Midbar if I go by car?

as soon as you hit the dead sea, you have no choice but to turn right...30 seconds later on your left is chof neve midbar on the left

there are 3 beaches, kaliya, baakani and neve midbar...just follow the yellow signs

mens hours start at 5pm women in the morning

Not sure about watersports but you should go paragliding. It's on top of the cliffs behind the ramada

this is not really an "activity", but i can't wait to get back to Jlem (for many reasons including) to get a real quality 100% unbonded leather belt from Belt-In on king george.

U choose the strip of leather (all colors) and the buckle, and they size u, affix the buckle and put the holes in in store. The belt i got 2 years ago for under $30 is in the best shape of any other (usually brand name but below $20 on sale) belt i have ever had. really a great stop.

anyone ever heard of or been to Na Lagaat Center? it's supposed to be this cool restaurant (among other attractions) that's mostly dark. very cool. i want to know the hashgacha, review, and price range. i can see hashgacha and price online but not sure if it makes sense ($35 for a complete fish early dinner?) any help/insight is appreciated.

what is this Hashgacha?

Dinner menu
My greatest achievement? I am fluent in FRIENDS quotes
