Tel Aviv - September 20-23, 2007

We are first-time travelers to Israel and unfortunately planned our trip during Yom Kippur. Is anything open? Should we postpone until after the holiday?

10 years ago an othorpedic friend of mine at Tel-Hashomer hospital told me that Yom Kippur is the busiest day of the year for orthopedic surgeons. The reason is that because no one drives all of the kids are out on the roads skateboarder/biking/roller bladding.

More kids break there wrists on this day than any other day.

Yom Kippur lasts for 26 hours and I am sure you can manage to organise your time around this. As for the day itself - there is a lovely atmosphere in Tel-Aviv, no cars or buses on the roads - children playing, cycling etc. Obviously it's supposed to be a day of religious and spiritual reflection which is hard to see, but if you are going to be in Israel during this time I think it would be an interesting experience for you.

I don't think you should postpone, Tel-Aviv is always a great city to visit and if you can handle 26 hours of your trip being a day of quiet and calm then you will be just fine - just wait until the real Tel-Aviv kicks in!

Hope you enjoy it - I came here on holiday in 1996 and never left!

if weather cooperates, beach would be perfect - plus take a stroll to Jaffa - may be a few places open there
