I am planning a trip to Israel from 6th-15th October. I know that it will be during Sukkot, but I cannot change the dates as that is when my kids are on school holidays here in Australia (they go to a Jewish school). It will be the 3rd trip for me, but first time for my husband and kids (age 15 &12).
At the moment, here is my rough draft itinerary:
Mon 6th – arrive in Tel Aviv in afternoon, look around, dinner
Tues 7th – Tel Aviv
Weds 8th – Jaffa
Thu 9th – day trip to North
Fri 10th - transfer from TA to Jerusalem
Sat 11th – Jerusalem (will be attending a bar mitzvah at the Kotel)
Sun 12th – Jerusalem
Mon 13th - Jerusalem
Tue 14th – day trip to Dead Sea/Masada
Wed 15th – depart
Are there things that need to be swapped around due to closures for Sukkot? All input appreciated.
