The Israeli New Shekel (or Sheqel) is the currency of the State of Israel, but it is also used in the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The New Shekel is divided into 100 agora. On the ILS coins and banknotes, the currency is spelled as “sheqel”, but “shekel” is commonly used.

The ILS is one of the least restricted currencies in the world when it comes to importing and exporting the currency, with no restrictions in place. You may find that some tourist sites accept USD as payment, but you are still likely to receive your change in shekels.
