What do I need to know before visiting Jerusalem?

Asked 3 years ago

Is there any dress code in Israel or specifically Jerusalem that we should know? And are there any places that are off-limits to non-religious people? What else should we know about before we land ourselves in trouble?

A few useful things to know before visiting Jerusalem include:

  • Dress as you would at home, but pack modest clothes for visiting religious areas.
  • Respect areas reserved for certain religions or for men/women only.
  • From Friday sundown to Saturday sundown many areas of Jerusalem keep Shabbat which means certain behavior is requred in public places.
  • Israelis are very friendly, so if you're unsure about how to behave, all you have to do is ask.
