Jerusalem Dress Code
Smart business attire is required at all times in Jerusalem.
Greeting Someone in Jerusalem
Ensure that proper appointments are made for meetings and note that business cards are widely used. Generally, business meetings are less formal than in Britain, but normal courtesies should be observed, such as shaking hands before and after the meeting. Bear in mind that some offices will be closed or only open for half a day on certain religious holidays. Note also that Israeli business custom includes a certain amount of exaggeration, where demands which seem unreasonable, are often made under the assumption that further negotiation will produce a reasonable compromise.
Jerusalem Business Hours and Banking
Business hours in Jerusalem are 08:30 to 18:00, Sunday to Thursday. On Fridays, businesses shut at 12:30 for Shabbat, which is Saturday.
There is a ban on smoking on public transport in Jerusalem and the visitor should observe this even if the locals often do not. In business, it is advisable to refrain and take cues from the host.
