Kinneret Up by 2 Centimeters

The surface of the Kinneret rose by two centimeters over the Purim holiday. The lake had risen four centimeters over the weekend thanks to Sabbath rains.

The lake is now just one meter and 43.5 centimeters below the upper “red line” marking it as full.

The Kinneret is Israel’s largest single source of fresh water.
