I'm trying to get the offset from the UTC time at Israel timezone:

TZInfo::Timezone.get('Israel').current_period.utc_offset / (60*60)

The result is 2 hours when 3 hours is expected (http://www.timeanddate.com/time/zone/israel/jerusalem)

utc_offset gives the base offset of the time zone (not taking daylight savings time into account). For the total offset including daylight savings time, use utc_total_offset instead:

TZInfo::Timezone.get('Israel').current_period.utc_total_offset / (60*60)

The #utc_offset and #utc_total_offset attributes are often confused
(#55, #89). Rename as #base_utc_offset and #current_utc_offset
respectively.

Retain the old names as aliases.
