      Kinneret Continues to Rise

      The Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) rose by 3 centimeters over the weekend. The freshwater lake continues to rise at a pace of one centimeter per day.
      The Kinneret is Israel's largest single source of fresh water. It was dangerously low two years ago following years of drought, but has risen considerably thanks to heavy rain and is expected to hit a 20-year high in 2013.
