It's a great idea to book Israel flights to coincide with one or more of the country's most popular and important annual events and festivals. Many of these are solemn religious occasions, but you'll also be able to find various entertainment events throughout the year. In May and June, you can take part in Israel's Independence Day celebrations, marked with an elaborate fireworks display. You're likely to be invited to any number of house parties during the night. In mid-May, head to Kibbutz Nof Ginosar for the Jacob's Ladder Country, Folk & Blues Festival. It showcases every kind of style in those genres, from contemporary and traditional Israeli folk to classic folk and Celtic music. Later in the month, you can join the entire country in celebrating the Jewish Pentecost, Shavuot. This is also a celebration of the summer harvest, and all manner of entertainment is provided, from live music to theatre. The end of June sees Tel Aviv Gay Pride Week. The Jerusalem International Film Festival takes place in the first two weeks of July, and in August, there's the Israeli Folkdance Festival at Karmiel in the Galilee region. Other popular music events are the Red Sea Jazz Festival and the Jerusalem International Chamber Music Festival in September and October.

You can get them in bakeries and pastry shops all over the cities. Another speciality is kugel, a baked casserole similar to quiche, made with potatoes, cheese and vegetables. It also comes in a sweet version, made with dried fruit.
