It's not hard to find dairy restaurants. There are lots of places here that make nice fresh salads with cheese and a few Asian restaurants where you can find tofu.

Nearly every restaurant in Jerusalem is kosher, meaning it has to choose between meat products (all meats, except fish, which is not considered a meat by Jewish law) or dairy products, but not both. You can easily find restaurants that are Milhig (with a guttural H) or Halavi (also guttural H) which mean dairy. There, all food will be vegetarian (again, may have fish.) Of course, it may not necessarily be vegan, then you'd have to ask. Parve foods contain neither meat nor dairy (but may contain fish and/or eggs.) Finally, what a hamburger is to America, Falafel and Hummus is to Israel. Almost anywhere you can find a decent and very cheap falafel, though often shwarma (rotisserie lamb or turkey) is served at the same establishment, so if that bothers you, keep an eye out, though the rotisserie is hard to miss.
