Israel will observe the week-long Jewish festival of Sukkot nationwide from September 20-27. The first and last days of Sukkot are public holidays in Israel. Businesses, schools, and government services will cease normal operations on September 20 and September 27. During the duration of Sukkot, many Israelis celebrate and take time off. Expect many businesses to have modified hours during Sukkot.
Heavy security is likely as a preventive measure during Sukkot across Israel, focusing along the northern border, the 1967 border (Green Line), and at synagogues and other public venues. Traffic in and around Jerusalem will be restricted; detours are possible at short notice. Security will be particularly high around the Temple Mount/Al-Aqsa Mosque complex, which has been the scene of recent clashes between Israeli security forces and Palestinians. Transport disruptions are likely nationwide.
