If you feel like moving to Israel, we may have a few job openings for you... Smile | :)

From the financial POV:
One of the reasons overtime is paid (by law, in many countries) at a higher rate than normal is to make it less attractive to the employer, the idea being that employees deserve reasonable amounts of time off. Time off in lieu may seem attractive, but you are actually being paid at a rate of 100% when you should be receiving a higher rate.

From the personal POV:
Having an extra day off gives you more time to spend with your family, but may not be that attractive if the rest of the family is still at school, work, etc.

Personally, I'd go for the cash.
Ad astra - both ways!
