What a sight this is. James had word through a friend that Jerusalem has few homes with a heating system–based on never needing one–but are now facing some colder than normal temperatures.
The heaviest December snowfall in 50 years, according to the Israeli weather service, fell Thursday morning on Jerusalem, which was briefly cut off from the rest of the country as access roads were closed.
It was also winter white on the summits of the occupied territory of the West Bank, from Jenin to Ramallah to Hebron.
Let us also know there are countless refugees from Syria that are suffering from this storm, due to the actions of Syria’s government.
