Hi Dotan,

Which version of KDE are you using, 3 or 4?  KDE itself doesn't supply the 
weather data, we just tap into various internet weather services.  In KDE3, 
weather feeds are restricted to those supplied by NUMA/METAR which outside the 
USA is largely restricted to major airports.  In KDE4, far more weather 
service engines have been implemented so you can try switching providers to 
something like the BBC which may have Haifa.  If none of the current KDE4 
engines have Haifa and you know of an Israeli service that provides Free feeds 
you can try contacting the current maintainer of the weather engines to ask 
him to implement the service.

But I'm not sure why you would need a weather feed for Haifa, if the weather 
the time I visited is anything to go by it's always sunny and hot :-)
