The relatively rare site of snow falling in Jerusalem can now be seen, with the snow having arrived this evening. This is much to the delight of children but less of a joy to drivers in Israel’s eternal unified capital. May this be a blessing and may everyone stay warm and safe!

Snow began falling in Jerusalem on Wednesday evening, fulfilling forecasts and prompting closure of the main highway into the capital and all schools for the following day.
A severe weather system, dubbed “Elpis,” had dropped snow on the north of the county from early Wednesday morning, with the conditions spreading steadily south throughout the day.
The first flakes began to fall in Jerusalem at around 7:30 p.m. and were predicted to continue for much of the night, piling up snow at least 10 centimeters deep.
