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.

  1. We have another week of daylight in the U.S. With Covid around for the winter, we’ve been hosting dinners outside on the patio. Even with our new propane heaters, I wish we would have daylight time year around so “early” dinners could still have some daylight.

  2. If we don’t have daily savings then getting to morning minyan becomes very difficuly. For example hanetz is 720 here right now, but after daylight savings it will go back to 620. 720 hanetz makes it difficult to get to work on time even with a fast minyan.

  3. I hear you! However, having daylight time year-round would create problems for those of us who need to daven early in order to get to work on time.

  4. There are to only two countries in the world that base the date for changing to standard time on religious holidays (Israel and the United States). How rational this is might be questioned.
