I plan to be in Jerusalem for the last few days of December 2013 until the 2nd week in January 2014. I am planning a detailed itinerary and I am trying to confirm if tourist sites have regular visitor hours on Wednesday, January 1, 2014. In particular, the Israel Museum, the Knesset, Yad Veshem and the Chagall Windows at Hadassah Hospital. I've emailed each and have not heard back yet.
And, generally speaking, is New Years Day a regular work day in Israel?
