I am religious and living in Jerusalem. This year Rosh HaShana is very early in September, but still I would love that winter time would start in October, to have more time to things with the whole family after school and work would be great. We are working and going to school 6 days a week and during winter time shabbath starts so early. The only day during the week we have time to do things as a family is sabbath, and even that is a short day during winter time. So even religious families in Jerusalem want summer time untill the end of October. Also because I work with Europe, I start later until October and work till late to be at the same time as Europe.
