This week Israel switches to daylight saving time

This Friday, March 24, Israel switches to daylight saving time: at 2 a.m., clocks will be moved one hour forward. That is the sleep time in the night of Friday will be shortened by one hour.

Summer time will last until the night of 29 October (Sunday) when clocks will be moved back one hour.

Recall that during the transition to summer/winter time several times confusion arose from the fact that many smartphones at the wrong time «translated arrows». The last failure was observed on 20 September 2015. In 2016, the clock passed without serious failures.

Modern smartphones independently translate the clock during the transition to winter or summer time, no additional actions from user are required.

The law on the renewal of daylight saving time was adopted on 8 July 2013. The law, proposed by interior Minister Gideon Saar, voted 73 deputies, 15 were against it. Before the summer was expired before Yom Kippur. Against the extension of daylight saving time objected to representatives of the ultra-Orthodox parties.
