You have been great so far, and yes I will order a book from Amazon, just frustrated at not being able to flip through several and make a choice on my own. In the meantime:
1) Do you have any hotels in TA and Jer. that you recommend? We are more the small boutique hotel kind of travelers and would prefer to spend under 200E/nite.
2) I bought a handwoven tallis in Jaffa when I was there as a teen. My daughter is being Bat Mitzvahed next year and I'd like to buy another. I remember it as being a workshop for the blind. Ring any bells for anyone? thx again. s
