Please note that ceremonies at the Kotel are held on Mondays and Thursdays. A minyan is provided. Services at the Wall follow Orthodox practice, so there is a separation of men and women. A Bar Mitzvah boy may wear tefillin and read a portion of the Torah and/or Haftorah.

Bat Mitzvah services for women can only be held at the Kotel if a male relative chanting on the celebrant's behalf. Private Bat Mitzvah services can also be arranged at the Southern Wall of the Temple Mount, at the outdoor Hurva "Synagogue", or at a synagogue of your choice anywhere in Israel.

(8) How can I hookup to the internet in Israel?

In Tel Aviv, check out the Inbar Internet Cafe at 2 Shaul hemelech Street (King Saul Street)

(9) What can you tell me about the VAT refund?
In Israel, a VAT Tax (Walue Added Tax) is added to the cost of a purchase as the product moves through its value chain. As a tourist, you are allowed to get a refund on the VAT payments you made on purchases greater than $100. KEEP YOUR RECEIPTS. In the departure hall at Ben Gurion Airport (after passport control), you just need to go to the VAT Refund desk, fill out the forms, and apply for the refund.

(10) What about 110 versus 220 electrical currents?
Israel operates on an electrical current of 220 volts. The USA operates at 110 volts. Therefore your 110 volt equipment is not going to work without a transformer. And even transformers are good to a point. If you require a hair dryer, it is best to bring one that has the option to switch to 220 volts. Or just bring an adapter plug with you.

(11) What can I do with kids in Tel Aviv?
You can go to the Educational Center for Games at 10 Rehov Israel near Hashimoniim and Hamasgir Streets. Lots of games to see and some to play.

You can take the Number 4 bus and visit the observation tower at Shalom Tower at 1 Herzl Street (517-7304), the tallest building in the Middle East. Or visit Beit Haganah Defense Museum at 23 Rothschild (560-8064) with displays on Israel's wars. Or visit Independence Hall at 16 Rothschild (517-3942). Ben-Gurion's home is at 17 Ben Gurion (the house in Tel Aviv, not the home in Sde Boker). There is the Diaspora Museum (Beit Hatefutsot) at TAU in Ramat Aviv (646-2020) If you are at the Tel Aviv marina, take the ferry between Tel Aviv and Yafo (it's like taking a round trip on the Staten Island ferry in NYC.

[book] Israel: A Spiritual Travel Guide. A Companion for the Modern Jewish Pilgrim. by Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman
208 pages (1998) Jewish Lights Publishing. I have placed this book in the must read section. It is the must companion for any traveler to Israel. The blurb says it best, "the other travel books tell you how to get there, Hoffman tells you why to go and what to do when you're there." Hoffman, a Professor of Liturgy at HUC-JIR, is best known for his book, "What Is A Jew?" In time for the jubilee, this invaluable travel guide is in four sections. The first contains eighteen (chai) meditations to be read before embarking on one's trip to Israel. The second section is on preparations for "the eve before the trip" Section three focuses on "How to prepare while on the way." And Section four is filled with 25 specific pilgrimage destinations for the traveler. For each site, such as The Kotel or a Kibbutz, Professor Hoffman provides THE FOUR A's -- four sections on "Anticipation," "Approach," "Acknowledgment," and "Afterthought." In Anticipation, one reads an overview of the sight; Approach contains biblical, rabbinic and other writings about the site; Acknowledgment is filled with prayers or readings for you to recite at your destination; and Afterthought provides a blank space in which you may record your feelings, emotions, or just plain journal entries. This is an excellent companion for a trip to Israel.

[book] Israel: A Photobiography by Micha Bar-Am, Thomas L. Friedman, Harris, Elon, Constance Herndon
$40, but you get 30% off. Hardcover-200 pages (February 1998) Simon & Schuster. What can I say? Micha Bar-Am is my favorite Israeli photographer. When I saw his recent show at the ICP Museum in NYC, I was drawn to the photo that he uses for this book's cover. There, in a development area, are Israeli flags drying on a clothes line in preparation for Independence Day celebrations. Truly, a picture can communicate so much. But this book is not just of Bar-Am's work. It includes some of the best of Robert Capa and others. In the words of A. M. Rosenthal, "The second best way is to travel through those years and see them through the eyes of somebody who has done all that - as in this book by Micha Bar-Am, Israel's best-known photographer in war and peace, a man with a mind that matches the depth and range of his photography." Now if only I can snag a signed print :-)

[book] The Loves of Judith by Meir Shalev, Barbara Harshav (Translator)
Hardcover - 315 pages (April 1999). Meir Shalev is one of Israel's foremost novelists. The extraordinary story of three men in the Jezreel Valley and their love for Judith and her son, whom each man participates in raising as his own. When Judith arrives in a small, agricultural village in Palestine after WWII, she is the center of everyone's attention--especially Moshe, a widowed farmer obsessed with his dead wife and his lost braid of hair, which his mother cut off in childhood; Globerman, a coarse cattle dealer who loves women, money, and meat; and Jacob, a farmer who gives up his wife, the most beautiful woman in the village, to turn his energies toward raising canaries and wooing Judith with all his might. For ten years the three men strive to win Judith's exclusive love, but she will not agree to marry any one of them. In her eleventh year in the village she gives birth to a son named Zayde, who looks like all three men. All three consider him their son, and all three participate in raising him. Judith finally marries Moshe, but within a few weeks she is killed under a tree that collapses during a snowstorm. This extraordinary quasi-mythological tale is told many years later by an adult Zayde, as he learns the details of his mother's life over meals elaborately prepared for him by Jacob. A universal story of love and destiny, "The Loves of Judith" masterfully combines classic Israeli characters with magic realism, as cows, canaries, and crows all act as emissaries of fate, along with a homosexual Italian prisoner-of-war who knows all there is to know about love.

A man thought to be an arms dealer asks Noa to oversee a drug rehabilitation center established in memory of his son, so Noah sets off to raise support for the idea. Meanwhile, details are revealed about 60 year old Theo and Noa's relationship and the lives of members of the community, all of which tell the larger story of Israel, death, and peace.

Renowned translators Chana Bloch and Stephen Mitchell have selected Amichai's most beloved and enduring poems from his eleven volumes and have included forty new poems from his recent work in this revised and expanded collection.

[book] On the Blossoming (World Literature in Translation) by Israeli poet, Leah Goldberg. Translated by Miriam Billig Sivan.
Hardcover (June 1992). A rare translation of Leah Goldberg's poems, my favorite Israeli poet. Goldberg expanded the spectrum of lyricism in poems which speak of the city, nature and the human being in search of love, contact and attention. In the words of the Center for Translation, Goldberg was one of a half dozen poets that introduced the rhythms of everyday speech into Hebrew poetry. They gave Hebrew flexibility and richness. The poetry of this period, which was greatly influenced by Russian futurism and symbolism as well as by German expressionism, tended towards the classical structure and melodicism of ordered rhyming.
