Stuff to do on Sukkot

With Sukkot coming up fast, there are tons of new archeological findings that have been discovered in the past few weeks. I hope they are open to the public and when you visit Israel you get a chance to see them.

City of David (open)
3000 year old bee hives (?)
Herodian (open)
King Herod's grave on Herodian (?)
Temple Quarry (?)
Secret Escape Tunnel under the Old City (?)

Other events this Sukkot include:

Kite Festival somewhere in Gush Etzion
Hebron Festival

If anyone knows of meore, please add them to the comments section.

And of course, DON'T GET LOST. Rent a GPS in Israel from DadyGPS. Mention JoeSettler "WebAds" and get a big discount.

(You could mention JoeSettler, but that and 5 shekels will buy you a cup of coffee.)

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

The Kite festival is a lot of fun, with things to do for all, from little ones to adults. It takes place in P'nei Kedem (south of Tekoa).

It acts as a fundraiser for the town (which has something like 19 or so families, all of whom must work quite hard to bring the festival off).

however, if anyone goes to the kite festival, make sure to bring your own kite. last year, even though they advertised "DIY," they ran out of kite kits rather early. sort of a waste to drive all that way and not have anything to do once you get there.

Chomesh on Tuesday.
Parade in Jerusalem on Tuesday. Two extremes.
Sukkah made of candy at the Jerusalem municipality. I actually heard one of the people in charge say, "Diabetics should stay away." But the Municipality sukkah in the past has included the finalists in a model sukkah competition and those are usually interesting. Jameel I think one year someone made a sukkah in an ambulance.
