Far from the madding crowd, it isn’t.
Indeed, Ir David (the “City of David”) - one of Israel’s most popular tourist spots - is likely to be especially packed on chol hamoed.
But don’t let the throngs scare you away.
Because if you’re looking for an awesome place to take the family over Succot, Ir David definitely fits the bill.
After all, it seems that not a week goes by without a new and exciting find being unearthed by the site’s archeologists.
Here are some pictures from our visit there this past summer:
Coincidentally, ESG happened to be in Ir David today with his school.
Originally scheduled for right after Rosh Hashanah, his trip was pushed off to today and, as a result, renamed. The destination remained the same, but what was initially touted as a “siyur slichot” was rebranded as an “aliyah l’regel”…

May you have a wonderful, happy and joyous Succot!
