I still have a few years before retirement though ...
In the meantime, I have have downloaded from the Knesset archives, the
various addendums and changes to the Time Determination Ordinance that has
its origins in 1940 during the British Mandate
<ftp://ftp.cs.huji.ac.il/pub/tz/laws/May_22_1940.pdf> up until the current
law <ftp://ftp.cs.huji.ac.il/pub/tz/laws/Jul_11_2013.pdf> and placed them
all under ftp://ftp.cs.huji.ac.il/pub/tz/laws/ -- all files are in Hebrew.
Basically, from 1940 until 2004, the start/end times of DST was determined
by the Minister of Interior and a set rule for the times was only first
passed as a law in 2005 which was amended in November 2012 and then again
in July 2013.
