Dollars are widely used in Israel. You could also use your cards in some places and also convert your Dollars & Pounds to Shekels.

How much walking do I need to be prepared for?

Most activities will include walking, so participants will be walking approximately 2-3 miles per day. We would recommend wearing comfortable shoes or sneakers each day.
