      Chanukah Candle Lighting in E1 / Mevaseret Adumim


      A Chanukah candle lighting ceremony was held Wednesday evening in Mevasseret Adumim, also known as E1. The barren tract of land is located in between Maale Adumim and north Jerusalem.

      During the ceremony, Mayor Benny Kashriel spoke positively about the prospect of building housing units in the area, thus alleviating the housing shortage and revitalizing the empty area.
