Side trips - Israel
There are countless day trips you can take, some with private guides, some self-guided tours (the Jerusalem municipality has trips you can download from its website, for example), some offered by nature organizations, etc. You do not say what your budget is, what your interests (nature, history, archeology, etc.), or in what part of the country you are most interested. Therefore it is somewhat difficult to answer.
I suggest you read some of my recent articles published by the Jewish Exponent magazine.

Tel Aviv - Have a business lunch deal at the 2C on the 49th floor of the Round Azrieli Building for the great kosher food and mostly for the 360 degree views of metropolitan Tel Aviv! & the Tel Aviv Museum (art) & if you are into dance and rythym check out Beit Mayumana at www.mayumana.com (cool!) & the beaches & the night life.
If you love geology: hike the Makhtesh Ramon (Crater) with the colored sands.
