Safed - gallery closing time Friday afternoon?

Going to Safed after touring Rosh hanikra on Friday morning. As I understand it, its about a 45 minute drive from Rosh hanikra to Safed. If we tour Rosh hanikra in the morning (about 1-2 hrs there) we wont get to Safed until the afternoon. I am concerned that the galleries will start closing early. Does anyone know when they will close. Last time in Safed, my husband and I bought a beautiful bronze sculpture. Would love to buy something else there.

Thank you.

Are you going to be visiting in the summer or in the winter?

The community has a website

http://www.safed.co.il/

if you keep going many galleries have their own webpages. Why not look and try to get a consensus of when they close.

In the summer Shabbat comes in later. So I would suppose until 3pm you should be OK, but Rdglady's suggestion of contacting the community is very good.
