Daylight Saving Times ended in Israel overnight Motzei Shabbos, when the clock was moved back an hour at 2 a.m. to 1 a.m., allowing Israelis an extra hour to sleep in on Sunday morning.
However, with most children still at home rather than school and many adults working from home, many Israelis have been waking up according to their own schedule rather than an alarm clock, which means that the extra hour won’t be appreciated as much this year by most.
Also on Motzei Shabbos, Israeli began saying “V’Sein Tal U’Mattar” during Shemonah Esrei.
Standard Time will last for 210 days until Friday, March 26, 2021, the night before erev Pesach, when Daylight Savings Time will be implemented again by moving the clocks an hour ahead.
