No School Friday in Jerusalem and Hevron Hills


The Jerusalem municipality decided, Thursday evening, not to hold school on Friday, out of concern for the safety of students, especially since Friday is a short school day. Authorities in the Hevron Hills region made a similar decision.

Authorities are concerned about slippery highways and other hazards as extreme cold remains from the storm system which was brought into the area by high winds and dumped rain and snow into the area.
