I am heading for Israel for the first time after 74 years. My wife is 70 and has relatives in Israel who emigrated when she was forced out of Egypt when Nasser took control. I have been asking various questions on this forum and am most appreciative of all the wonderful replies i have received.
My wife keeps talking about the heat although she hasn't been back to Israel in three decades. She keeps saying we will swelter from August 22 - September 7. (This is the only time I was able to get away.)
Our itinerary includes spending the first week in Tel Aviv at a hotel still to be determined but probably facing the sea and another week in Jerusalem, finishing up in Tiberias with a cousin.
The question boils (sic) down to how hot is hot. We live in in New York City where the summer months can get brutal at times. Aside from the desert, will we be experiencing blistering heat in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem during this period where we can hardly do anything?
