The seven day festival (8 days outside Israel) celebrates the gathering of the harvest and commemorates the miraculous protection G‑d provided for the children of Israel when they left Egypt and the time when we complete and re-start the reading of the Torah (5 books of the Old Testament). It is a joyful celebration, shops, restaurants and schools will be closed on Monday 14th and 21st October and there is no public transportation either on those days. Public transport will also cease around 3pm on Sunday 13th and Sunday 20th October. CHAG SAMEACH

This is the summer season ! Temperatures can rise well into the high 30’s (up to 100 degrees). Please ensure that you drink plenty of water during the day, use and frequently apply sun cream, keep heads covered (especially younger children) and spend periods in the shade (especially between 11am and 3pm). Even though there is a breeze along the coast and on the beaches, it is still easy to burn.
See Jerusalem as you have never seen it before – walls of the Old City ablaze with light projections, wander around the streets filled with special effects, musical fountains and so much more. Please be aware that the areas can be very crowded.
