As Jerusalem residents woke up to a city covered in white on Thursday morning, the Jerusalem municipality held a situation assessment regarding the city’s education system and services.
The meeting was headed by Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion and attended by Ari Kaplan, chairman of the Teachers’ Union.
Education institutions in Jerusalem’s “yellow” and “orange” neighborhoods that were approved to reopen by the Health Ministry began at 9:00 a.m., according to a statement issued by the Jerusalem municipality.
The municipality will continue to work around the clock to clear snow from main roads, with an emphasis on the roads that lead to the city’s major schools, the statement added.
The city’s light rail began operation at 7:00 a.m.
