    "Spring has arrived. We will all enjoy another hour of daylight that will help the economy and save us great amount of energy," he said.
    "Along with the success of the vaccination campaign and the drop in infection, the transition to Daylight Saving Time heralds the beginning of a new era, which will benefit the public after the severe crisis we have all experienced."
    Deri is one of the proponents of using Daylight Saving Time throughout the year in Israel.
    Proponents say winter time shortens the time parents spend with their children, increases the risk of road accidents and increases the Israeli economy's expenses by hundreds of millions of shekels a year.
    Daylight Saving Time will end on October 31, on a night between Saturday and Friday.
