Traveling to Israel soon? We can make packing a lot easier with a few go-to tips on what to bring.

 

First things first — check the weather. While summer can be hot and humid, winter will definitely bring a chill. Plan for the season and amount of outdoor activity scheduled, including hikes, beaches and city exploring.

 

For multicity trips, expect different climates as you go. Tel Aviv may be more humid than Jerusalem, on higher ground and typically on the drier side.

 

One article of clothing you should start with: a swimsuit. Floating in the Dead Sea would be tricky without one, and Israel’s stunning beaches and Mediterranean waters are not to be missed. Ladies, bring a cover-up and, everyone, bring sturdy sandals to maneuver the varied terrain and acceptable public dress.

 

Speaking of public dress, plan for more modest outfits when visiting the Holy Land and other ultra-religious neighborhoods. Women especially have to remember to cover up in orthodox locales with ankle-to-wrist-to-collarbone-covered attire. Plan for long sleeves and pants for these excursions, as a sign of respect for the community’s beliefs.

 

For everywhere else, pack casual, but not sloppy, skirts, shorts, shirts, dresses and pants to cover all dining, shopping and day-to-night activities. Having an itinerary can help determine your wardrobe, as each city’s weather and activities may vary.

 

Depending on the region you’re visiting and season, simple, interchangeable pieces are best. Think light, cool clothing for summer days, layering pieces for any time of year, a sweater or two for chilly desert nights and a few modest staples for various religious tours. Don’t forget comfortable shoes!
