Would it be crazy to skip Jerusalem for Petra?

We've got 5 days in Israel. Is it crazy to squeeze in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and a day trip to Petra? Would it be crazy to sacrifice the time in Jerusalem to go to Petra?

We arrive in Tel Aviv very early Wednesday morning (we're staying with a friend there) and depart from Tel Aviv after midnight on Sunday night. The vague plan now is to spend Friday/Saturday in Jerusalem and the rest of the time in Tel Aviv.
But we've both wanted to go to Petra for a long time. It seems like it would be pretty hectic to squeeze in a trip to Petra on Thursday. Would it be crazy to skip Jerusalem for Petra?
We're not particularly religious, so while the sights in Jerusalem will be interesting to us on a few levels, this isn't a pilgrimage of any kind.
