How about the one I posted?
Someone else just told me yesterday that those ones don't accept American CC's. Seems like you're right.

Waze keeps you safe. You can use maps if you're scared as they're more cautious

you are almost right, because waze does take you in to some neighborhoods that are a bit scary (my personal experience), so i would tell you to plan your drive before and check out what way waze gives you and make sure it's safe

It should keep you away from any stone throwing neighborhoods. Yes, it will bring you past Arab villages, but not the terribly dangerous ones.
I'm not who you think I am.

Has anyone here visited Arugot Farms in Gush Etzion? Found a tour advertised on Janglo.net...wondering if it is worthwhile. Looks like they have done remarkable transformation of barren land.

Can anyone recommend a NO-Kitniyot place in Jerusalem for take-out prepared food? Seems like most places in the shuk are Kitniyot (but look delicious, not gonna lie).

Just so you should know most gas grills in Israel run on butane while most gas grills in the US run on propane.

If you do get one please let us know which you get and how much you paid.

Some key points to visit in the Golan Heightes? Love to see the Syria/Lebanon border.

Hermon has a bunch of activities to do even with no snow that I personally think is fun (for all ages 5+). Chook Manara is an awesome place and the views from the top are from the best in Israel. Hula Valley. Katzrin for views to Syria (There are a few roads that run along the border). Go up to Metula to see the Lebanon border.
