8 days in Israel

4 women travelling in Israel for 8 days, please help me plan my itinerary:

Tuesday August 20 shopping & Kotel (what's the best way to get to the Kotel? Is car rental advisable?)

Wednesday Kever Rachel (how to go?) & hopes of Chevron (is it possible to go to Chevron & safe?)

Thursday Dead Sea (is it possible to get a day pass at the Crowne Plaza and how to go about it? Also, what is the best way to get there from Jlem?)

Sunday Tsfat? Is it possible to do in one day? How? And what is the best way to get to see the Kevarim and the synagogues of Tsfat? Is it suggested to drive a car to the North?

Also, places to exchange dollars?

Cell phones?

Any advice given would be appreciated!

You don't need a car to the Kotel and shopping, take public transportation or a taxi. There is no parking in the area in anycase.

Kever Rachel and Hevron are easily accessed by bus, but I suggest visiting these two places on seperate days due to the logistics of publuc transportation to these sites((PM me about the logistics). You can go to Zfat in a rental for one day and visit kvarim but I don't suggest it due to the long(2.5 hours) each way on crowded roads which will not give you much quality time to visit the sites you want to. In any case you will need the car for two days so I suggest staying overnight in Zfat for a better experience.

Keep the car and drive down to the Dead Sea the following day(overnight in Jerusalem). Day passes are availabe at all hotels on day if arrival for about ₪140 per person.
