- March – Purim, the Jewish holiday, is a week-long major celebration. It is kind of like a mixture of Halloween and Mardi Gras, so the night life is booming and the days are full of parties too. The weather is still going to be pretty wet though.
- April – If you are looking to Travel to Israel for the religious pilgrim. The temperatures are getting warmer and the rainy season is coming to a close. You can visit the beaches and pools, plus if you are religious, you get to experience Easter and Passover. You may not find many restaurants open or places that serve bread. There will also be a lot more crowds because of the two-week long vacation Israelis have.
- May – The weather is fantastic, there isn’t a lot of rain, there aren’t many crowds, and the scenery is gorgeous. If you can be there during Israeli Independence Day and Memorial Day, you’ll feel amazing. The Jewish festival of Shavuot (Feast of Weeks) is also pretty cool to attend.
- June – August – The nightlife is booming but it is pretty hot during these months. It can also get pretty crowded because there are a lot of travelers and the beaches are full.
- September – The crowds start to leave and the weather cools off a bit. Don’t go on the eve of Yom Kipper though, because nothing is open and the whole country basically shuts down.
- October – If you are a religious pilgrim, you will probably enjoy going during this time. If you are not a religious pilgrim, you probably will want to find another time to go.
- November – The weather is gorgeous and there aren’t many people. However, since the summer didn’t bring much rain, the country will be pretty dusty and dry.
- December – January – Feeling in the Christmas spirit and don’t mind being a bit wet and cold? January brings the lowest prices and both times are great to experience a genuine, authentic Christmas experience.
