On Sukkot day what can I do in Jerusalem

On Sukkot day (Sep 25th), are all the sites in Jerusalem closed? What can I do on that day? Anything special I can see?

Sukkot is on the 26th, not the 25th (only one day is celebrated in Israel). Therefore the 25th will be like a Friday - everything will be open but will close earlier than on a regular weekday. Check web sites for Friday hours.

Not nit-picking - just expanding - mbgg's answer is right - the holiday you are asking about is celebrated on the 26th of Sept this year - however, Sukkot is a week long holiday that begins on Sept 19. The 25th is one of the intermediate days, however, it will be like a Friday in terms of transportation stopping late in the day and opening hours of various sites. The 26th is a holy day and there won't be public transportation, but it is a different holiday called Simchat Torah.
