Israel Switches to Summer Time


hebrew-clockTonight, Israel will be switching onto summer time. At 2 a.m. local time, the clocks will move forward to 3 a.m.

Cell phones and computers should be set to update automatically as long as the time zone region is set to “Jerusalem, Israel.”

The summer clock will be particularly long this year, as Israel won’t return to winter time until October 26, in accordance with a Knesset decision last July to extend summer time. As a result, the summer time will last over 20 days longer than in past years. The change was intended to bring Israel into a closer time synchronization with Europe, which also switches over to winter time in October.
