About Jerusalem

Jerusalem is located in the Judean Mountains between the Mediterranean Sea and the northern edge of the Dead Sea. It is the largest city in Israel in both area and population. Although Jerusalem is known primarily for its religious significance, the city is also home to many artistic and cultural venues.

For further information on what Jerusalem has to offer, please visit The Israel Ministry of Tourism website at: The website offers a wide variety of things to do whilst in Jerusalem and Israel and provides information on the local area.

Religious Customs

Shabbat, or Saturday, is the Jewish holy day of the week. Shabbat starts on Friday afternoon/evening and ends on Saturday evening. All public offices in Israel are closed on Shabbat, as are most private businesses such as stores. In most cities, public transportation (trains and buses) does not operate. In mainly secular cities, like Tel Aviv, a lot of the restaurants and cafes are open but throughout the country many restaurants are closed. It is recommended to check in advance if you are planning on visiting a specific location. Radio and TV broadcasts operate as usual.

Meeting Language

The official meeting language will be English.  All submitted abstracts, full papers, general correspondence and meeting sessions will also be in English.

The 1st International Conference on Targeting Liver Diseases will take place during  Thursday 26 June and Friday 27 June 2014.

Banks and Currency

The Israeli currency is the New Israel Shekel (NIS) or Shekel for short. There are 100 Agorot (agora in singular) in each shekel. Bank notes are in denominations of NIS 20, 50, 100 and 200; coins are in denominations of NIS 10, NIS 5, NIS 2 NIS 1 and 50 and 10 Agorot.

You will find cash machines/ATMs at most banks, hotels, and shopping areas around Jerusalem. Traveller’s cheques are widely accepted however you will require your passport to change these cheques. Currency exchange is also widely available at banks and bureaus across Jerusalem and at the airports.

Most banks are open between 08:30 and 12:00 and again between 16:00 and 18:00 from Sunday to Thursday. However this can vary from bank to bank. Most banks are closed on Fridays. On Jewish holiday eves banks are open from 08:30 – 12:00. All banks are closed on Shabbat.

Most of the large hotels have banks which often offer additional, more convenient hours. Most hotels and our DMC will accept Euros (€) and US Dollars ($).


The Israeli power supply

is single phase 220 volts at 50 Hertz. Most power sockets in Israel have three pin holes, but many of them will work with double-pin European plugs. Visitors who want to use shavers, traveling irons and other small appliances may need both transformers and adaptor plugs.


If these are different from the ones used in your country, you will need a socket converter/ plug adaptor. 



Jerusalem lies at an altitude of about 700 metres above sea level atop the central range of hills that forms the geological backbone of the Holy Land. It is influenced by winds from the West (that bring cool sea breezes in summer and rain in winter) and winds from the East (that moderate winter temperatures but can make summer days hot and dry).

Summer weather (June to September) is generally dry with no rain. It can be warm, even hot, however the temperature can fall in the evening and it can feel chilly so light jackets are recommended.

VAT information

The VAT rate in Israel is applied to most goods and services. The standard rate is 18% as of June 2013.

According to the Value Added Tax (VAT) Law, a foreign tourist is able to benefit from a zero rate of VAT on a vast array of services obtained during a stay in Israel or request a VAT refund on purchases made during a stay.
