My wife and I will be in Jerusalem the last half of September and Rosh Hashanah is during that time (and before anyone asks, no we can't change the dates.) From what I've read on TripAdvisor and elsewhere I understand that almost everything including restaurants will be closed from the eve of the 24th through Shabbat on the 27th.
Our accommodation will be in city center near Davidka Square and is bed and breakfast. Does anyone know of any restaurants in the area that might be open during that time? Would a McDonalds restaurant be open? Not our first choice but fine if nothing else. We're not Jewish so don't care if kosher or not - just a place to find an evening meal. I know there are some of those in the area. My wife spent time last October in city center so is familiar with the area (Jaffa Road, King George Street, Ben Yehuda, etc.) There is some kitchen facilities available in our accommodation so if necessary we might have to get some food at the market before Rosh Hashanah eve to last a couple of days but had hoped to not have to do that.
One further question ... our calendar indicates this is Rosh Hashanah but also calls it Feast of Trumpets which Google tells me is a Christian term. Does anyone know if there are any events or celebrations happening in Jerusalem, Christian or otherwise, during this time? I wasn't able to find anything on the Internet.
