Jerusalem Municipality Will Distribute Christmas Trees to the City’s
Residents Celebrating Christmas
19 December 2018
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 09:00-12:00 upon
presentation of a valid ID card indicating residency in the Old City.
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.
The event is open to coverage. Please RSVP with the Jerusalem Municipality
Spokesperson at 02-6297744 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Jerusalem Municipality wishes the city’s residents a joyous holiday
