While the days may draw shorter, there is still a great selection of things to do in Israel in December. With cultural events continuing throughout the month, and festivities for Jews for Hanukkah, and Christians for Christmas, as well as New Year’s Eve in Israel which is becoming bigger every year, December 2020 in Israel offers a great selection of events and festivals for all tastes, ranging from major cultural festivals to folk music festivals, and comedy tours, to concerts.
Due to the global pandemic of Covid-19 and the uncertainty that is has ushered in, many events are cancelled or postponed. We will not be removing seasonal events from this page to offer you an overview of the events typically offered this time of year, but please check directly with the coordinators if you’re planning on attending any events.
