JNF & Jerusalem to Distribute Free Christmas Trees


As it does ever year, the Municipality of Jerusalem and the Jewish National Fund will distribute a limited number of free Christmas trees. On Tuesday the municipality stated, "as the home of the three Abrahamic traditions, Jerusalem is dear to over 3.5 billion people of varying faiths around the world. Our city is proud to be an open city, with freedom of religion for all residents. The Jerusalem Development Authority, in coordination with local residents and shop keepers, will also decorate the streets and hang festive lighting in the Christian Quarter of the Old City."
