Time in Israel
The exact time in Israel is based on the time zones for Israel. We will always try to give you the exact time for Israel. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Israel might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Israel are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for Israel, and falls back one hour in the fall for Israel. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Israel to improve its tourism and depend less on Israel's electricity supplies.
