We fly to the Holy Land on El Al as a group from International Airports (i.e. LAX, JFK, Atlanta) to Tel Aviv. The flights are anywhere from 10 to 14 hours and arrive the next day. (Israel is 10 hours ahead of California, 7 hours ahead of New York). Once the group gets through customs, Ezer, our guide, enthusiastically greets us and directs us to our bus, traveling with us on our drive north to the Sea of Galilee.
Holy Land Weather:
The weather in Israel is comparable to California. While many of the days will be suitable for warm weather clothes, remember that many sites will not allow visitors wearing shorts or sleeveless shirts to enter. i.e. your knees and shoulders must be covered! Each evening of the trip you will be advised as to what you can and cannot wear for the next day’s itinerary.
