Pictured is a corner restaurant on Dizengoff Street on Israel’s weekly Shabbat (Sabbath) day. Dizengoff Street, Tel Aviv’s busiest social area is usually flowing with pedestrians and traffic, but it is evident that the crowds are reduced on this day. Specifically in Tel Aviv, the Shabbat is recognized by minimal traffic/pedestrian movement and low business activity. Instead of going out, most of Israel’s inhabitants opt to stay in and spend their day in a combination of rest and prayer.
