How is the Shabbat in Israel? Are the Jewish restaurants available or only the Arabs?
Do secular Jews work in restaurants when it is Shabbat or only Orthodox Jews take a completely rest? I thought Israelis could only eat at home or at Arab restaurants. I wish I can visit Israel soon. And this information will help me when I travel. I Will know what I will find. Shabbat Shalom.

Outside of Tel Aviv and Arab (non-Jewish) communities, it'll be rather hard to find restaurants open on Shabbat. Essential things will be open, and if you're staying at a hotel they'll be able open; however, restaurants that are run by Jews tend to be closed on the Sabbath. Not all, and like I said it'll be easier to find an open one in Tel Aviv; but, it's something to plan for. Also, there are few people who aren't part of the Jewish or Arab communities in Israel, and if they have a restaurant that'll likely be open too.

Arab jews are making Shabbat too whats the point of saying Arab restaurants ? maybe Palestenian restaurants or non practicing Jew restos.
