Are Israelis really worried that they'll be hit by Syria in retaliation?

Israeli (or Israel-located) responses only, please. :)
I'm flying to Israel this coming Sunday morning for a week-long vacation with my wife. The current plan is 1 day Jerusalem, 1 day Ramallah, 4 relaxing days on the beach in Tel Aviv. Now I'm trying to figure out whether I'll be flying into a war zone.

In America, there are a lot of headlines right now suggesting that Israelis are bracing for an imminent onslaught:
Is this actually the mood on the street, or just a silly media storm? Are average Israelis bracing for imminent attack, or is Tel Aviv going to keep on keepin' on as it usually does? Am I foolish to still plan on coming to Israel?
I research foreign policy for a living, so I'm not really interested in armchair quarterbacking from outside Israel on what Syria might or might not do... I get that in spades at the office. I want to know what the sense of Israelis is regarding whether or not they feel like they're going to be in danger in the coming days.
