More specifically, the current law mandates that DST ends
at 02:00 a.m. on the Sunday before the fast of Yom Kippur
(falls somewhere in September or October).

There has been some discussion in the Knesset about amending
this law since the switch back to DST occurs sometimes in early
September (e.g. September 8, 2013).

Thusfar, no proposed amendment has gone as far as to be tabled
on the Knesset floor.
