I will be traveling to Israel in mid-September and then wanted to go to one other destination. My first choice would be diving in the Sinai in Egypt, but since the situation is a bit unstable I was looking into other options. What are other places to visit from Israel that one can actually get to and that are stable right now?
Any suggestions would be appreciated!

The only other country that has an open land border with Israel is Jordan. Anywhere else involves flying. How far are you prepared to go? One can actually get to hundreds of destinations by flying from Israel. New York, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Paris, London...

4I can't see where the OP asked about day trips. And I read it to mean leaving Israel to go somewhere else, and not returning to Israel.

Turkey? Greece? Not knowing where you've already been means we don't know what constitutes new destinations...

8Well looking on a map yourself might help :)) - along with an indication of how far is 'not too far' - also is that referring to travel by road or flying ? I believe Sinai is out of bounds now for Israelis due to the deteriorating security situation so yes that's definitely out.
Side trip overland to Jordan via Sheikh Hussain bridge - if your family have a car they can drive you into Jordan through here. Many Israelis drive into Jordan from this point.. and you can exit via the South ( Eilat ) with numerous stops along the way.. Jordan is a very safe country and welcomes everyone.
Alternatively a flight to Cairo or Istanbul may be an option for a short side trip of a few days... but without knowing exactly what you want its difficult to advise..
