Snake Path

We are planning a trip to Israel for the end of June. We would like to hike to the top of Masada. What is the best time to start and about how long does it take? Can you still take the cable car down? Are there tour guides to explain everything once you get to the top?

As for other restaurants, I would avoid both the inherent and the non-inherent calamari ...... ;-)

mbgg is right - years ago many restaurants without kosher certification simply were open on Shabbat - today, the list of inherently non-kosher menu items is far too long to list. In most cases, non-kosher means exactly that -

We used to have KFC, kosher ones too, used to have Burger King too till they were bought out - personally I'd rather have a really good falafel or a salad.

But now I think we've strayed so far afield - especially when I look at the header for this thread - we've left the snake path a long time ago and wandered way off.

Are there any snakes native to the area? Must be.

Before we manage to scare anyone - the path is called the Snake Path - not because of any slithering reptiles but because it is full of serpentine turns.

Your point interests me about kosher and shabbat. Are you saying that food isn't kosher if it's sold on Shabbat?

Thanks
