We recommend modest dress for religious sites - shirts with at least short sleeves for both men and women, a skirt covering the knees for women (a jacket and tie are not necessary).
Out on the town clothing...
You can wear exactly what you'd wear here. For example, a nice shirt and pants or a casual skirt. Comfortable walking shoes are essential. FYI- many of the streets are paved with stone...it's challenging to wear shoes with awkward heels/soles on uneven pavement.
In Israel, most of the same products they sell in America are available, although they are at a substantially higher cost:
• Lip balm
• Tylenol/ Ibuprofen
• Eyeglasses/ contact lenses
• Anti-bacterial hand lotion
• Any prescription medicine (acquiring the generic name is recommended)
A few more suggestions that will make your trip to Israel more comfortable:
• Tissue Packs
• Photocopy of your passport
• Gum/ candy
We also have a winter packing list.
