  • Hello cromd,

    In Israel, From September through November, temperatures in Tel Aviv range from 61-75°F (16-24°C). Jerusalem and Golan Heights are approximately 5.5°F (3°C) colder, and Eilat is usually 5.5°F (3°C) warmer. In Jordan, the heat is usually moderated by low humidity and a stiff daytime breeze, while the nights are cool and pleasant. You can check www.weather.com for the most up to date weather forecasts.

    Your journey through Israel and Jordan is casual. Dress for comfort and convenience with a wardrobe that is adaptable and allows for layering. Comfortable, cotton clothing is suggested. In October, you will need a light jacket or fleece, a light sweater and a rain poncho. No special attire is required for dining, although you may wish to dress more formally for fine dining experience in metropolitan areas. Most importantly, bring comfortable yet sturdy walking shoes that have already been
    broken-in. It is important that your shoes have good ankle support, as we visit some ancient sites where paths and stairs may be uneven and unpaved.

    In Jerusalem, you should dress appropriately when visiting the Old City and ultraorthodox Jewish neighborhoods.

    Jordan is primarily a Muslim country, although the freedom of all religions is protected. Muslim women's clothing often covers their arms, legs and hair. Western women are not subject to these customs, but very revealing clothing is never appropriate and conservative dress is advisable for both men and women in the old part of Amman (Downtown), and outside the cities. Shorts are rarely worn by either sex, and would be out of place in the downtown Amman area.

    Hope this helps,
