car rental & shabbat questions-pls help,1st time to Israel!


I'm new on this forum. I hope someone will help me. I am going to Israel for holiday with my husband btw 5th Nov-16th. Our itinerary is in this order - Tel Aviv,Nazareth,Sea of Galilee,Jerusalem,Dead Sea,Tel Aviv. We are doing a christian tour kinda thing, going to some historical sites in the bible. We are struggling with 2 problems.

1.we are renting a car and we heard that israeli car companies don't allow their cars to drive to palestinian territories. we wanted to go from jerusalem to dead sea direct using short cut and I think we may go into those territories. So is it really true?We also want to visit bethlehem. Will this be a problem? any info on general israeli car policy will be great. (we are french,chinese)..

2. Shabbat - we will be in jerusalem on friday which is shabbat. can anyone recommend a place we can go for food on friday evening? We are happy to have shabbat dinner or buffet. Just no Italian or any other cuisine..while in Israel,we ideally would like to eat the local food..
