It feels like Wednesday today, even though it’s only Tuesday.  And it doesn’t have anything to do with time zones.  It’s because the work week in Israel is Sunday-Thursday (or maybe through Friday morning), because of Shabbat.  It really takes some getting used to.  Sunday is really “Monday,”  TGIT is a concept, and people do crosswords and brunch on Saturday morning, which is Israel’s “Sunday.”  Israel is the only country with a work week like this.
