Daylight Saving Time Changes 1966 in New York, New York, USA
Germany first established DST in May 1916 as a way to conserve fuel during World War I. The rest of Europe came on board shortly thereafter.
In 1918, under Democrat Pres Woodrow Wilson, the United States adopted daylight saving time. Though Pres Wilson wanted to keep daylight saving time after WWI ended, the country was mostly rural at the time and farmers objected, partly because it would mean they lost an hour of morning light. (It's a myth that DST was instituted to help farmers.) And so daylight saving time was abolished until the next war brought it back into vogue.
At the start of WWII, on Feb. 9, 1942, Democrat Pres Franklin Roosevelt re-established daylight saving time year-round, calling it "War Time." More here and here
Then in 1966 Democrat Lyndon Johnson established the Uniform Time Act of 1966 causing uniform Daylight Saving Time throughout the US. On Sunday, April 24, 1966, 3:00 am local daylight time. Sunrise and sunset were about 1 hour later on Apr 24, 1966 than the day before.

Many people don't like Daylight Savings Time
Daylight-saving time savings energy is a myth
11-2-17, Market Watch -- Daylight-saving time doesn't decrease total energy use. However, it does smooth out peaks and valleys in energy demand throughout the day, as people at home use more electricity in the morning and less during the afternoon. Though people still use more electricity, shifting the timing reduces average costs to deliver energy because not everyone demands it during typical peak usage periods.
Most areas of the United States observe daylight saving time (DST), the exceptions being Arizona (except for the Navajo, who do observe daylight saving time on tribal lands) and Hawaii.
Also overseas territories of American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands do not observe DST.
Israel Daylight Savings Time
In the Jewish state of Israel, before 1992 daylight saving time was governed by the Time Act, a law inherited by Israel from the 1948-1957 British Mandate of Palestine, but the length of Daylight Saving Time has changed significantly depending on the year and doesn't align with the USA.
