We're leaving for Israel in 2 weeks (can't wait!) and plan to be in Jerusalem on a Friday. We're looking forward to experiencing the beginning of sabbath at the wall, but someone told me that it's not advisable to be in the old city on Fridays during Ramadan -- does this make any sense? I didn't really understand the reasoning behind that statement. If that's the case, we'll probably make that our Masada/Dead Sea day.
Thanks for any info!
