"To Nancy H re: Time Zones"


 

Dear Nancy,
 
On March 21st the sun will rise in Jerusalem at 5:42 AM Israeli Standard Time (IST) and will set at 5:40 PM.
 
On March 22nd the sun will rise in Jerusalem at 5:40 AM IST and will set at 5:42 PM IST.
 
The East Coast of the United States is 7 hours behind Israel, so subtract 7 hours from the above times to get Eastern Standard Times.
 
Israel changes from standard time to daylight savings time on March 28th.
 
The web site below is an excellent reference for sunrise and sunset times for anywhere in the world.  I have this site saved in my computer's "favorites" section and I have the location set for Jerusalem.
