Traveler Information



If you have arranged shuttle service with us from the Ben-Gurion Airport, when you come out of baggage claim and customs, look for the shuttle service driver carrying a 2016 Wingate Congress sign. If you are arriving at a date other than June 1 or 2, and/or wish to arrange travel back to the airport, the following travel options are available:

Train from Ben-Gurion Airport to Netanya (about $8 per person):

Israel Railways


Bus (about $9 per person):

Egged Bus System


Taxi (about $60-$70, depending on time of day)


Service cabs:

If you are interested in travelling within Israel during your stay, there is also a service cab available which is similar to a bus, but picks up only up to 10-12 passengers at any time. It stops or lets off passengers wherever they wish on its route (Looks like a mini-van, white and yellow, with TAXI written on it).



In Israel, the electric current is between 110-220 Hz. If you are bringing devices with a different electric current, we suggest you bring a universal adaptor.

In order to prevent any computer complications, we strongly urge all participants to send us power point presentations so we can upload these in advance and check that they can be uploaded on our system.  If you are using any other technological tools or video clips, we suggest you send these to us in advance to check on our system as well. No materials you send us will be made public without your consent.

Our Information Technology staff will assist participants in uploading their presentations on site as well.



Most business establishments in Israel accept only New Israeli Shekels. Currency exchange points are available and usually offer a better rate than banks.

ATM machines are also widely available and credit cards can be used to draw cash in Israeli currency.



Friday is considered a half day in Israel and most business establishments close at about 15:00 until Saturday at sundown (about 19:00-20:00). Some restaurants and cafes are open (especially in Tel-Aviv) and kosher restaurants are closed.

There is no public transportation (trains and buses) from Friday afternoon to Saturday at sundown. However, service cabs (see above) and taxis are available.
