#1 Free Christmas Trees For Jerusalem Residents
Jerusalem Municipality Will Distribute Christmas Trees to the City’s
Residents Celebrating Christmas
The Jerusalem Municipality will continue its annual tradition of
distributing complimentary Christmas trees to Jerusalem’s residents in
celebration of the holiday. One-hundred and fifty trees will be distributed
on Thursday, December 21, at the Jaffa Gate Plaza from 9:00AM-12:00PM upon
presentation of a valid ID card. (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 Barkat will be leading his annual tour of the city’s major churches
later this month. During the Christmas season, he will meet with Christian
leaders to discuss issues and opportunities for the city’s Christian
community and residents.
Mayor Barkat 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 February 1, 2018, in Jerusalem's
City Council Hall at 19:30. The reception is by invitation only.
The Jerusalem Municipality wishes the city’s residents a joyous holiday
