| Jerusalem to distribute free Xmas trees to Christian residents this Thursday

Zev Stub    
Monday, 17 December 10:31 AM

The Jerusalem Municipality will continue its annual tradition of distributing complimentary Christmas trees to Jerusalem’s residents in celebration of the holiday. Two-hundred and fifty trees will be distributed on Thursday, December 20, at the Jaffa Gate Plaza from 9:00AM-12:00PM upon presentation of a valid ID card indicating residency in the Old City. (Media should please RSVP.)

The Christmas tree distribution is part of the city’s comprehensive Christmas preparations, which include hanging festive lighting and flags in areas of the city where the holiday is celebrated. These neighborhoods include: the Old City’s Christian Quarter, Beit Hanina, and main thoroughfares for pilgrims, such as the Mar-Elias road. The Municipality has also increased rounds by municipal cleaning and landscaping crews in Church areas. Additionally, the Municipal Licensing Department is working closely with the Christian residents of the Old City to accelerate approvals and provide assistance for holiday fairs and celebrations in the Christian Quarter. The Municipality is also working in close collaboration with the police to ensure that as visitors come to the city for pilgrimage and processionals, traffic and parking run smoothly.

Mayor Lion will be leading the annual tour of the city’s major churches in the coming month. Mayor Lion will also be hosting the Municipality's annual New Year's ceremony for leaders and representatives of the religious communities in Jerusalem. The ceremony will take place on January 22, 2019, in Jerusalem's City Council Hall. The reception is by invitation only.

The Jerusalem Municipality wishes the city’s residents a joyous holiday season.
