Tel Rehov 2010 Season
Travel and Arrival in Israel:
It is recommended not to arrive in Israel on Friday afternoon when everything begins to shut down for the Sabbath, or on Saturday when everything is closed. There is no public transportation in Israel from Friday late afternoon until Saturday night. If you land during these times, for $10 you can take a “Nesher” service taxi whose station is right outside the arrival terminal. They go to Jerusalem, where you can stay until the end of the Sabbath. Or you can take a fixed priced taxi to Tel Aviv. Plan to arrive in Israel at least one day before you are scheduled to begin the dig.
We suggest that you change some money into shekels after
arriving at the airport. You may want to bring half the
amount of money in traveler's checks for safety reasons. You
can cash traveler's checks at any post office without paying
a commission. An alternative to traveler’s checks is ATM
machines throughout Israel that will give you Israeli
shekels. (Be sure to get a PIN number to use with your card
if you do not already have one. You must have a number code
or know its equivalent numerical sequence, since ATMs in
Israel do not have letters on the number pads).
