Israelis light candles in the shape of a clock during a protest against the government decision to return to winter clock more than a month ahead of Europe and the U.S. in Tel Aviv, Saturday, Sept 22, 2012. Israel was set to move its clocks back by an hour overnight on Sunday, putting the country on its winter clock more than a month ahead of Europe and the U.S. and adding to the rising anger that many mainstream Israelis feel toward an ultra-Orthodox minority. Yom Kippur, which begins on Tuesday evening, is marked by a sundown-to-sundown fast. Orthodox religious parties, which have always held key swing votes in Israel's political system, are behind the time change, wanting to decrease the number of waking hours for those fasting.
