Ramparts Walk- on top of the Old City walls
Kotel Tunnel Tours/Old City Jewish and/or Muslim Quarter Tours (PM satturn if you want a private tour)
Time Elevator in Jerusalem- Don't waste your time.
City of David (Ir David)-Amazing-you must take a tour to fully understand the site.
Segway tour-interesting way to waste a few hrs-NOT an absolute must do
Biking - Beatiful trails in the valleys outside of the city. PM Drago if interested.


Tel Aviv/Center

Blind or Deaf Museum in Cholon- Blind, amazing. Deaf, good. Prior reservation needed.
Hagana Museum in Tel Aviv--15NIS per adult; students free; a bit disjointed and kind of fake acting in the videos, but mostly very interesting and educational.

Rosh Hanikra- Way up north

Golan Heights

Tel Dan nature reserve (similiar to Banias Waterfall -slightly easier & toddler friendly)

Lol  idk about that . Yours might be in perfect condition as you say but if it wasnt about helping you get rid of it, from a financial standpoint spending a other 190 nis for new as opposed to 950 nis used us a smart choice (plus free delivery w/o lifting a finger).
Well the person that bought it from me also didn't have to lift a finger. He's taking over my apt

Nope. Used appliances aren't a bargain.

I've been told that especially in regard to appliances bought here. It's worth an extra couple of hundred shek to buy new.

Haha, this thread got confusing :)
Thanks for all the suggestions.  As of now, it seems that replacing the glass is around 800-900 shekel just for the new glass, and then 100-200 for the work.  Although the option replacing the entire door seems easier, none of the "professionals" suggested it.  I will ask about it though.  There is a store on Ohalei Yosef that says they have used ovens, and they would swap out a glass for us, bringing down the price to about 400 shekel.  I'll keep you guys updated.  Thanks!
There's a place אלון לוק, on ohalei yosef (3, next to zol ubgadol).  I brought them the door, they replaced the glass with a door they had sitting there (2nd hand).  total cost was 400 shekel.

I bought a tempered custom sized glass from Yosef Cohen for 90 shekel and bought gasket glue from Olam Habait for 12 shekel and put it together in under an hour and a half (including watching how-to YouTube videos).

Not sure if you need a round applause or thumbs down for not making yourself 298 shek profit with half hours time after the fact that you can do it yourself now and help him out .
Either way , some peeps are the "do it yourself" type and some not. & some are that way with computers and some are that way with appliances.

Rabbi weiner would like to inform the tzibbur that the kashrus standard of the Skyline Chef Restaurant, Jerusalem gardens hotel, 4 Zeev Vilnai Street, Jerusalem, 02-655-8847 now meets his qualifications. I encourage patronizing this restaurant.
 
This notice is only with regard to the restaurant, and does not apply to the hotel.

Arguably the best food you can get in Jerusalem!!

Anyone know the Rosh hashana "lineup" at the Ramada, Inbal, Jerusalem gardens or similar?
Am looking for a hotel with good hechsher, good chazan and not too pricey.
Thanks!
