The Bank of Israel has issued a press release announcing that Tuesday, January 22, 2013, would also be a bank holiday in Israel (January 22, 2013, will not be considered a business day in the banking system).
Late last month (2012-12-18), Israel's Central Elections Committee had issued a statement confirming that Tuesday, January 22, 2013, the date of the upcoming elections to the 19th Knesset, would be a non-working public holiday in Israel.
As per Article 10 of the Knesset law, election days are still public holidays in Israel (2009-01-27), despite attempts to the contrary by the Speaker of the Knesset, Dalia Itzik, a few years ago (2008-11-16).
