The buy (NIS4.82/US$) and sell (NIS4.94/US$) rates are prominently displayed on the store's signage. The shekel weakened by 1.2 percent in nervous trade to a representative NIS 4.89 to the dollar during the day, with dealers blaming the shekel's slide on growing fears of a credit rating downgrade for Israel as well as on the possible scenario of a U.S.-led attack on Iraq. Since the start of the month, the dollar has strengthened by NIS 0.23, which is a gain of 4.9 percent against the shekel. (Photo by David Silverman/Getty Images)
