Remember to Set Clocks Back This Weekend


Print Friendly, PDF & Email

clock1.gifStandard time returns this weekend, so set your clocks back an hour on Motzei Shabbos (Saturday night).
Most Americans will get an extra hour of sleep, but those working overnight shifts will toil an hour longer. It also means some will forget to change their clocks, and will show up an hour early for events on Sunday.

The time change doesn’t apply in Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.


  1. It’s a big mitzvah!
    If you forget,you might come one hour early for shacharis.
    We get an extra hour to learn on a motzoei Shabbos,or an extra hour for the internet.
    This gives us an extra hour to persuade people to vote this Tuesday and to study the candidates.

  2. In addition, many people use this occasion as an opportunity to remember to check (and change, if necessary) the batteries in your smoke/CO detectors.

  3. Why did Yankel throw the clock out of the window? He wanted to see time fly. I always wanted to post this and I didn’t know when would be the right time, if ever. Bingo.
