 Israel switches to winter time

On the night of Saturday to Sunday, October 30, Israel will switch to winter time. The changeover will occur at 02:00 AM, when all clocks will be set back one hour to 01:00 AM.

Daylight Saving Time will begin on Friday, March 24, 2023. Interior Ministry Director-General Yair Hirsch said: “Daylight saving time, which ends at the end of the week, lasts 210 days this year, and the extra hour of daylight during long summer time has benefited the country's citizens, economy and trade. The winter time, which will start at the end of next week, will end with preparations for the next Passover holiday.

If you are not sure if your phone has automatically updated the time, go to your phone settings and change the date and time setting in the settings with “automatic installation” to "local time" and select “Jerusalem, Israel”. Thus, the time will change one hour ago. But in the vast majority of smartphones, the time will be updated automatically.
