Israel? There is no way anyone could every do EVERYTHING! There's too much! My favorite night spots were the pub in the Gimmel dorms and Forum (talk about a place to meet hot Israelis...). Nafis is probably one of the best restraunts in Beersheva, but its open on Shabbat so its technically not kosher. Every Thursday is a Bedouin marketplace with great stuff. Outside Beersheva, Maccabee Tel Aviv is a fun basketball team to watch, and Maccabee Haifa is my favorite soccer team. In Jerusalem, get over to Ben-Yehuda street. Best shops outside of the Old City. Skiing up north on Mt. Hermon. Rafting on the Jordan river. The Golan is a beautiful place to hike. The promenade (spelling?) in Jaffa along the coast is romantic. Eilat has great snorkling spots that are absolutely beautiful.

Gaos, the bar in the Gimmel dorm was the best place to go simply b/c of convenience but also b/c it catered to the college crowd. Go to festivals and outdoor markets whenever you can. take advantage of the opportunity to go camping, hiking, and bicycling throughout the country(but not before checking on safety warnings; also, make sure to bring plenty of water).

Gaos- easy access (its in the dorm), reasonable prices, all student (but it smells bad and therefore, you do too). Faktor/Forum, Baraka, Nafis.
