Hello I will be arriving in Israel on Thursday 12/26 early, early morning and I start a class at Hebrew U/Jerusalem on Monday 12/29. I would like to go to Tsfat and the Dead Sea. (and from this forum, I'm thinking Beit Shean). Because my 4 days includes early-starting Shabbat, and I don't want to rent a car I'm not sure how to do this. Getting to Israel will be 2 days. Should I plan to collapse/recover in Tel Aviv for one day and then try to go to Dead Sea for Fri-Saturday and then go to Tsfat Sat pm to Sun pm (or Early Sun and make it a one day trip?). Or arrive on Thur and push myself to Tsfat same day and leave mid-day Friday? Or Tel Aviv directly to Dead Sea and Tsfat on Sunday... I'm having a hard time navigating the Egged Site or there is only one bus at one time of day from Tel Aviv to Dead Sea? I like the idea of staying one night in both places. Any advice is appreciated.
