  1. An Israeli passenger who tested positive and was treated in a Japanese hospital, was released from the hospital and then tested positive when he returned to Israel. He flew home on a commercial flight, and Israel has instructed everyone on his flight to self-quarantine for 14 days: https://www.timesofisrael.com/israeli-returns-from-japan-after-bout-of-coronavirus-tests-positive-again/
  2. Israel, whose only 2 cases (so far) of the virus are two passengers from Diamond Princess, has taken the extreme move of recommending that Israelis refrain from any foreign travel: https://www.timesofisrael.com/in-unprecedented-move-israelis-advised-to-avoid-all-travel-over-virus-fears/
  3. There’s a ‘dialysis traveler’ group on the popular social media site with a face. Members trade info on dialysis centers in places around the world. You could join that group, and post there. Once you come up with a couple of possibilities, your dialysis center should be able to help you with the arrangements.
  4. Just to add to the confusion, my 2 cents about JR's plan for 2 days from Ashdod. First - it seems "too ambitious" - even for such a small country like Israel. Too much driving, too little time for visiting. JB’s interest was as much or even more for the drive as the sites, so while I agree 1000% that his plans were very ambitious, there certainly are many options for lovely and unforgettable drives which are doable within his short timeframe. Route nr. 2 is fine (for most parts). Caesarea is well worth a detour. Rosh Hanikra and its grottos (mentioned before) are
  5. Another suggestion for your trip: Since you’ve been to the Sea of Galilee, consider spending the overnight in Safad (Tzfat), especially if you’ve not been there before. It’s a city of mystics, artists, hippies (and also regular people), filled with loads to see, as well as a variety of fun shopping and eating and sleeping opportunities. Note that if you have mobility issues Safad can be challenging because it’s on a mountaintop with some steep inclines to maneuver as you explore. Gorgeous views on the ride there and all around, making for a lovely drive.
  6. Since you are planning to see Acre (Akko), you might want to continue up the coast to Nahariyyah and then to Rosh Hanikra, with a possible slight detour on the way to Akko at Zichron Yaacov. Nahariyyah is a quiet, lovely small seaside town just north of Acre, with Rosh Hanikra a few miles past Nahariyyah. There are beautiful grottos at Rosh Hanikra, with a cable car ride down to them. You will also be on the border with Lebanon, and will have an interesting view of the sea border, as well as a stunning view back along the Israeli coastline. Zichron Yaacov is an upscale suburb
  7. That cleared it up for me, hope it did for you, too! Will see if I can help out with more of your post.
  8. JSYK, there was a fish selection available for each of his meals, including for lunches in the WJ. My husband just added that there was also a pasta option for each meal.
  9. I am vegan and on the very restrictive renal diet, and my husband, who is not vegan, keeps strictly kosher. We were on Symphony when she sailed the Med, and contacted special needs a few weeks before our cruise to notify them of our dietary needs. We were both very pleased with all our meals. The head waiter came to our table each night to discuss our options for the following night’s meal. My husband had several choices for each meal, and each was a fully sealed 3 course meal, including an excellent dessert (and disposable serving ware). Although it sounds like you eat food pr
  10. Hi everyone, I wanted to introduce myself and let you know I'd be happy to answer questions you have about Israel and visiting Israel. (I'm not a travel agent nor am I associated with any agent, I'm just a smiling resident happy to help out.) I moved to Israel from New Jersey almost 10 years ago, and live in a Jerusalem suburb. [i'm about to take my first cruise- to the Mexican Riviera :-).] I'll try to check this board a couple of times a week, and while I'm sure I don't have the answers to all your questions, I'll be happy to answer those I can. Israel is a beautiful cou
