I have been to Israel but never on a chag like Pesach. I am renting an apartment near Emek Refaim but am not arriving until the day the chag begins (erev). I have a place to go for seder but am not sure how I will be able to get food into our apartment. I understand that 'things sell out' in the grocery stores. What kind of things sell out and do they restock during the week? Do you know of any service that could do my shopping for me? Would the grocery stores be more full and stocked in Tel Aviv? Anything you can advise would be great.
Also,when the first day of holiday ends at sundown, will restaurants open?
