Hundreds of people, including several Likud members, arrived on Sunday evening to support Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat at a toast in honor of Rosh Hashanah.
Barkat said at the event, "The public in Jerusalem is not stupid. The residents are the voters and they vote for whoever is best for Jerusalem. For me, Jerusalem is a lifelong task and not a political appointment. The public recognizes who has Jerusalem DNA and who came from Givatayim, who is a real Jerusalemite who comes to serve Jerusalem and who came to take over the city. I thank all the Likud members for their support.”
