visiting Israel in October

At this moment I know nothing about Israel holidays. Do I hit any holidays on my vacation in Israel from October 2 to October 16? I just looking for tickets and do not want to be in Israel when it it too crowded.

No, you don't. Use Israel's Ministry of Tourism holiday dates webpage:

No problem. All of the holidays in Israel are in the month of September in 2013.

Point of information. Holidays in Israel are according to the Jewish calendar which is a lunar calendar. The dates being discussed above are ONLY for 2013. There ARE holidays in October in 2014. Please do not use the information presented in responses # 1 and # 2 and generalize. You can't!

rdglady is right, I said "no problem" - for 2013.

Anyway, you have all the holiday dates for the next 3 years in the link I've supplied.

It is a great time of year to visit -- October and May are my favorite times. And this year -- and this year only (or, at least, rarely) -- no problems with holidays!

Enjoy your visit!

is it a good time to go to Israel in October in terms of being able to experience what the entire country has to offer (beaches included)?

In general it's a fantastic time to visit. The weather will be cooling down a bit but you can always go to Eilat if you want to be guaranteed hot beach weather.

I remember going into the Mediterranean in Netanya in my first October visit (in 1991), and it was delightful! But October can be a variable month while still pretty warm, so it will depend on that particular week's weather.
