Change in the Clock Cuts US-Israel Time Difference to Six Hours

JewishPress Logo

The time difference between Israel and the United States is now only six hours following the beginning of Daylight Saving Time in the United States and Canada early Sunday morning. Israel moves its clocks forward on Friday morning, March 28.

The exceptions to Daylight Saving Time in the United States are Hawaii and Arizona, but then there is the exception to the exception since the Navajo Indian reservation stays in synch with the rest of the country.

The Energy Policy Act in 2005 changed the usual switch to Daylight and Standard times and added more daylight for a few weeks.

DST will last for 238 days until the first Sunday in November.

Israeli official moves it clocks ahead at 2 a.m. Friday morning, March 28, until Sunday, October 26, one week before the United States reverts to Standard Time

    The six-hour difference only applies to people in the Eastern time zone of the U.S. Believe it or not, there are actually Jews west of the Hudson.
