Time Difference Between Tel Aviv and New York 7 Hours

Israel went on "summer time' (Daylight Savings Time) at 2 a.m. Friday morning, and the difference in time with the East Coast of the United States now is seven hours. The United States went on Daylight time earlier this month, and Europe moved the clocks forward last week.

Summer time will remain in effect until before the Yom Kippur holiday, under a new law which provides for standard time until the Friday before Passover.
