      Kinneret Rises by Two Centimeters

      Dr. Amir Givati of the Israeli Water Authority told Arutz Sheva on Wednesday that the rains that have fallen over the past several days have caused the water level in the Kinneret to rise by 2 centimeters.

      “No one yet knows what will happen during the winter, but this year we started the winter with more water in the Kinneret, compared to December of last year. We’re still below the red line but the picture is clearly more optimistic," he said.
