I live in Israel and my clock is not synced correctly (it is 2-3 min. ahead)
settings:


Is there a way to fix it or I should cancel auto sync?

Thanks

Are you on some sort of corporate or institutional network? NTP (Network Time Protocol) is sometimes blocked on these.

Can you open a terminal windows and run the command: ntpq -p
Something like this.

Code:
$ ntpq -p
  remote  refid  st t when poll reach  delay  offset  jitter

tok-ntp-ext.asi 17.82.254.14  2 u 1244  64  1  323.229  -433.79  0.001
The above is from OS X 10.9.5 and the offset is in milliseconds.

The offset is often a little worse in OS X than other *nix operating systems, due to the apple ntpd / pacemaker implementation. But it should be good enough for most people and certainly not offset by minutes.

Edit: as mentioned above, some corporate networks block ntp.
