The Israeli economy is expected to save some NIS 80 million over the course of the 170 days of daylight savings time, according to the Manufacturers Association of Israel. The clock change will slash energy reliance by NIS 40m., as well as increase the production of workers and reduce the number of road accidents, claims Moshe Cohen, the Chairman of the Energy Commission at the Manufacturers Association. The Knesset has established that daylight savings time begins every year on the Friday before April 2 and ends on the Saturday night between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. At 2 a.m. this Friday morning the clocks in Israel will spring ahead to 3 a.m.
