Israel will observe Shavuot from Saturday evening (local time), June 8, to Monday evening, June 10. Shavuot is celebrated as a public holiday and significant government and commercial disruptions are planned during the celebrations. A heightened security presence is expected throughout the country, particularly near religious sites and in the Old City of Jerusalem. Border crossings may also be closed to Palestinians during and before Shavuot.
Individuals in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are advised to adhere to instructions issued by local authorities, respect local customs, anticipate a heightened security presence, border closures, and disruptions to transportation, businesses, and government services.
