Saturday night marks the end of daylight saving time in Israel.

At 2 a.m., clocks will be set back one hour, allowing for an extra hour's night sleep.

In the past, there were problems with smartphones, which were supposed to update the time automatically but often did not. It is suggested that the time zone on smartphones is set to "Jerusalem" in order to avoid confusion.
