Many of the cafes offer free internet access, specifically but not limited to Aroma,Cafe Rimon, etc. Also the lobbies of most hotels. Perhaps also yours.

What we did was to buy a SIM card in Israel for our phones, and we accessed the internet that way. It worked out cheaper than using the hotel Internet and we had access at ant time of day that we wanted.

I would just scan for open connections. From our hotel room on Jaffa Street we were able to pick up multiple open wifi connections for our Blackberry Playbook. Not all of them we great but we always were able to get connected to one of them.

What hotel are you staying at? As said, most only charge if you are in our room. ( and they can't charge you if you "just log in' The way it works is they sell you a password if one is needed!

On your Ipad go to the iTunes Store and download a free app called Wi-fi finder

When you have it installed, open it up and it gives you all the options for free wifi in the area where you are. Install the free offline data base so that you can search without an Internet connection. It is a worldwide data base and gives you some options for places like Jerusalem.

Note that the app gives you quite a few options. The most important one for you is that it shows free and paid wifi spots. You can set the option for free.

When in Israel do a search via your offline data base for a free spot. When you get to the one that is closest and have a wifi connection, do another search not using the offline data base. You will probably find other options closer to where you are staying.

Apart from that, asking people who may know is a great way to go. :). We found quite a lot of cafes had free wifi but at the hotels we stayed at you had to pay for Internet access. The receptionist at the desk in your hotel probably gets asked that continually and can probably tell you the closest.

If your ipad is one that can use a SIM card then I suggest that is a simpler way to go and will give you access anywhere you are for the whole time you are there.

Where are you staying?

If you intend using the internet a lot I would change hotels to one with free WiFi or at least free in the lobby.

The trains all have free WiFi and Aroma Cafe but seriously consider changing your hotel. I have been to Israel twice and never paid for WiFi always free in my Hostel/Hotel.
