Ringing in the New Year in Israel

New Year celebrations in Israel are always a bit... awkward. With two calendars in use throughout the country – the Jewish lunar calendar and the civil Gregorian one – we typically reserve “Happy New Year” for our greetings at Rosh Hashanah, the celebration of the Jewish New Year. So when New Year’s Eve comes around you’ll finally find the Israeli population at a loss for words. While Tel Aviv never misses a reason to party, there are no country-wide countdowns, no rampant New Year’s resolutions, and it’s business as usual on January 1.
