Israeli Shekel

Israeli Shekel

The Israeli new shekel (Hebrew: שֶׁקֶל חָדָשׁ‎ Sheqel H̱adash; Arabic: شيكل جديد‎ šēkal jadīd; sign: ₪; code: ILS), also known as simply the Israeli shekel and formerly known as the New Israeli Sheqel (NIS), is the currency of Israel and is also used as a legal tender in the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The new shekel is divided into 100 agora. The new shekel has been in use since 1 January 1986, when it replaced the hyperinflated old shekel at a ratio of 1000:1. The currency sign for the new shekel ⟨ ₪ ⟩ is a combination of the first Hebrew letters of the words shekel (ש) and ẖadash (ח) (new). Alongside the shekel sign, the following abbreviations of NIS, ש"ח‎ and ش.ج‎ are also used commonly to denominate prices.

1 ILS to QAR Spot rate – This is known more formally as the ‘interbank’ rate. It is the rate banks or large financial institutions charge each other when trading significant amounts of foreign currency. In the business, this is sometimes referred to as a ‘spot rate’. It is not the tourist rate and you cannot buy currency at this rate, as you are buying relatively small amounts of foreign currency. In everyday life it is the same as the difference between wholesale and retail prices. The rates shown in financial newspapers and in broadcast media are usually the interbank rates.

Grapevine: An ongoing legacy
Grapevine: An ongoing legacy

What do Lord Roderick Balfour, former Jewish Agency chairman Natan Sharansky and the State of Israel have in common? All three came into being in 1948. The interesting coincidence came to light this week at a gala dinner celebrating the 101st anniversary of the Balfour Declaration hosted by the Israel Britain and the Commonwealth Association at the Hilton Hotel, Tel Aviv. Lord Balfour, who is no stranger to Israel, and Sharansky were the guest speakers. Balfour – utilizing that characteristically British mix of wry self-deprecation, humor and wit – kept his audience alert as he made some interesting historical and emotional points. Sharansky noted that 101 years earlier, news of the Balfour Declaration and the Bolshevik Revolution had been published on the same day in newspapers. Not much attention was paid at that time to the Balfour Declaration, but the Bolshevik Revolution was hailed as something that would change the course of history. Before either of them spoke, there were the traditional toasts to the president of Israel and the queen of England. In making the toast to President Reuven Rivlin, British Ambassador David Quarrey said he was a great admirer of Rivlin, but was taken aback when presenting his credentials when Rivlin had asked him on camera when the queen would visit Israel. Although that visit did not take place, Quarrey was delighted to have accompanied Prince William to meet the president.
