Israel in Late October or November?

We are seriously thinking of going to Israel sometime in late October or November. I'm someone who hates really hot weather. And when I'm a tourist, doing the usual running around tourist stuff, I would be miserable if it were hot.

That being said, I know that Israel is a generally hot country! I also know that there are different areas with different temperatures. Thus I thought about late October or November.

We would be there for 2 weeks.

Has anyone been to Israel during those months? If so, what has been your experience?

In 2015, we spent a month in Israel from Oct 6-Nov 7.
You are right that temperatures vary significantly.
In mid-October, it got to almost 100 degrees in Eilat, but we bundled up a LOT to go stargazing in Mitzpe Ramon.

abram - We'd love to go snorkeling but I fear the area that that would be in would be 100 degrees!!

It was hot when we hiked near Eilat, but the snorkeling was lots of fun and we loved our private tour of the Bird Observatory.

With just two weeks, if you excluded Eilat and the Negev, it's very unlikely you'd have hot weather. Jerusalem is at a high enough altitude that it can be quite chilly by then, and the rest of the country is (usually) gorgeous.

We were thinking either Mid-late October or third week in November (beginning before Thanksgiving and extending after).

I guess the snorkeling intrigued me and that would bring us to the South. But I also know that you can't do everything in 2 weeks, even though it's a tiny country.

The weather will be very good. There is only a small chance of rain and the summer heat will be long gone. Eilat will most likely be in the 80-90 range although there is always the chance of above average temperatures. It will be chilly in the evenings in Jerusalem and other high areas - the Galilee and Mitzpe Ramon - so bring a warm jacket.
