Weather and What to Pack
November: Daytime temperatures will be very pleasant: 70º-ish in most of the country (but hotter at the Dead Sea). Jerusalem will be in the 70º's, cooler in the 40-50º's in the evenings. There'll be some rain - nothing torrential. Winters in Israel are mild compared to North America but can get quite cool especially at night.
Pack light for Israel, and don't forget the shades: In the winter, about the only extra layer you'll need is a light sweater and a windbreaker. Israelis dress very casually; in fact, a famous Israeli politician was once teased for showing up to work one day wearing a tie. Specific suggestions include
What documents do I need to travel to Israel?
For U.S. and Canadian citizens, all you need is a passport that’s valid at least six months longer than your date of arrival in Israel. (For stays up to three months, you don’t need a visa.)
