Dress is generally informal. We suggest that you bring comfortable, easily laundered clothing, such as a pair of slacks and/or khakis. Women should bring a skirt for Shabbat. A sports jacket is optional for the men. Comfortable walking shoes, sweater or light jacket are needed, as Jerusalem can get chilly at night. Expensive jewelry, electronics and other valuables should be kept to a minimum. If you bring any of these items, please pack them, your passport and a sufficient supply of any prescription medications you are taking, in your carry-on luggage. Once in Israel, we suggest placing your valuables in the hotel safe and carrying your passport, camera and cash/credit cards with you at all times.
To be carried with you (in carry-on or purse)

Anticipate your needs. Some items are much more costly abroad.
Note: All medications should be kept in a carry-on bag. Do not check through with other luggage.
Note: Layered clothing is recommended for comfort.
No tweezers or sharp instruments
Note: Film and batteries abroad are usually expensive. Bring plenty!
