Good evening,

Family of 4 with 2 kids flying to Israel in a week's time. Is it safe to travel to bethelem from Jerusalem at the moment? Quite worried about today's protest..

Yes, it's safe. Any protests will almost certainly be history a week from now; they usually last for three days! And if you are referring to the violence in Gaza, that is nowhere near either Jerusalem or Bethlehem, and far from where tourists are generally likely to visit.
