2) You can rent boats to go on the Vlatlava river, not sure the cost. You can also rent "City Bikes" in the old town square for 300 Czech krona. (About $12) for 2 hours & every additional hour its 50 krona which is about $2 USD.

3) All Jewish attractions close at 6pm (or 4 in winter).

Impressed with the food at both Chabad restaurants, especially the dairy one. Best pizza I've had in Europe!

for food, yes.
I had a hour layover and went to eat at chabad meaty and on a two hour walking tour and made it to the airport with lounge time to spare  :)
ETA: I took bus + subway combo into the Praha 1 district and uber to the airport.

There is a mikva I went, that is supposedly from the BASH"T and it's a big Segula for many things especially for women that have infertility issues.

I don't have the exact address, if you need it is may get it for you. I remember they called the town Ranshburg and it's like 1.5 hours from PRG.very spooky place and you need to bring towels. I stopped at a store and emptied out their shelf.

Passport control in Prague can be quite long though VIP is an option and not very expensive

I had a 6.5 hour layover and it was VERY tight. If you have a taxi waiting at the airport, and the person waits for you there, you can make it. It's tight though.
