We got our flight from London Luton to Ben-Gurion airport in Tel Aviv with Easyjet (5.5hours).
Handily, the train station was directly outside the airport, we jumped onto a train into the centre of Tel Aviv and then transferred onto a train into Jerusalem. All the trains here are double deckers and bring a whole new meaning to 'mind the gap'!< …
... to think about how the elderly could contribute to the young State.
A former school teacher named Myriam Mendilow was disturbed by this phenomenon in many ways. The sheer human suffering was of great concern to her, as well as the loss of self-respect suffered by the elderly.

I'd read and heard much about the physical wall Israel has built between Jewish and Arab-controlled land, but I of course had not yet seen it.

Small, cheap and cheerful, the staff were very friendly and helpful.
In a great location and you can go up to the roof on a night to get some absolutely stunning photographs of Jerusalem and the surrounding areas.
