On this Saturday night, motzei Shabbos Lech Lecha, Israel moves from daylight savings time to standard time. That means on motzei Shabbos at 2:00am, clocks are moved an hour back to 1:00am.
Some cellular providers have sent SMS text messages with instructions as to how one should set the clock ahead of the time change. Golan Telecom for examples, instructs users to move their time settings to ‘manual’ and then from ‘Israel’ to Athens’ Greece’ until after the time change. Then one can return the settings back to automatic and the phone should revert back to local settings.
Daylight savings time is set to resume on the eve of 7 Nissan, Thursday night to Friday, 23 March. DST this year will be 210 days.
