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.
Yehudiya hike is very popular, check out the parks website for others as well

Zap.co.il - is just a search website for appliances.
Imperiat Hachesed - has small appliances like toaster ovens, hot water urns etc... but not anything bigger.

There is something called Bnei Yeshivos located at the end of Malchai Israel, left and down a small street that has really good prices.

Yes, but their technicians are not the best.  Might be worth it..

Maybe this belongs in the hotel thread, but does anyone know of any place up north that we can go to as a family, and the lodgings are in/or right next  to some sort of farm? We'll be there summer and some of my kids absolutely love farm animals, so I'd like to go someplace I can give them a good farm experience, not just a short visit.

HA! NO!

Really for small appliances you can't go in to Cheap Cheap or another random store in Geula or Meah Shaerim?
Imperiat Hachesed will really be the cheapest?
