I will be in Jerusalem a total of two Fridays. I am a little curious when they say "Everything is closed" and it comes to mind a place that is stark, cold and gray. Will the tour groups still be operating? So far I have not read any of the tour groups saying they are not operating during Shabbat. Will there be eateries that are open? Are all the merchants at rest during this period?
Thank you if someone could please explain.
