This past Sunday morning, with piles of garbage still dotting the cityscape, Mayor Nir Barkat joined the weekly government meeting and heard Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu express some understanding regarding Jerusalem’s needs.

A few hours later, official releases from the government and the municipality disclosed the result: a joint commission to the city and government ministries was established, led by the prime minister’s CEO, to learn about and build up a new program of support for the city’s needs – and the last visible remnants of the strike were cleared away.
