Snow in Jerusalem

Jerusalem of Gold became Jerusalem of White

 

In a very unusual weather event, December brought 5 days of much needed rain and unexpectedly heavy snowstorms to Israel.  

 

Jerusalem, where the snowfall is believed to be the heaviest in a century, was transformed into a magnificently beautiful white panorama, to the great delight of the children as school was canceled and they had the unusual opportunity to play in the snow, joined by many adults who enjoyed themselves equally as much.

Despite the inconveniences that accompany unusual weather conditions the beauty in the capital and many other parts of the country is still drawing visitors who are enjoying the beauty of the snow.
