Electricity in Israel on Shabbos


Does power stay on over sabbath, or does the fridge go off and food ruined?


In israel the power stays on during the Shabbath. Although the electricity is created through chillul shabbos many people rely on the opinions that say that since it would anyways be needed for sick people that it is therefore permitted to use.  Others are stringent in this regard and get their electricity from local sources, such as local generators.
