I'm aware of the TZ variable format. However, this doesn't allow one to refer
to "the Friday before the last Sunday in March" and not at all to "the first
Sunday after October 1. If the end of IDT falls on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish
New Year, then IDT will end on the first Monday after October 1". (from
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel_Summer_Time )

Obviously, it is possible to include rules for a specific year by just refering
to the exact days. This would be sufficient if there was a method to define
rules for more than just the current year.
This could be achieved by extending the TZ variable gramar from
std offset dst offset, rule
std offset dst offset, rule[@year[, rule at year][, ...]]
