The Jerusalem Municipality, in coordination with the Jewish National Fund, will distribute free Christmas trees to Christian residents of the city on Sunday between 9:00 a.m. and noon at College Des Freres - De La Salle High School, located at 20 Bab El-Jadid Road. According to the municipality, the trees will be given on a first come, first served basis.


There will also be a limited amount of Christmas trees reserved for journalists with GPO cards who are non-Jerusalem residents. The Jerusalem Development Authority, in coordination with local residents and shop keepers, will also decorate the streets and hang festive lighting in the Christian Quarter of the Old City.


“As the home of the three Abrahamic traditions, Jerusalem is dear to over 3.5 billion people of varying faiths around the world,” Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said in a statement. “Our city is proud to be an open city, with freedom of religion for all residents.”
