Rehovot brings snow from Mount Hermon for city-wide winter-time merriment
"All the residents are invited to come and enjoy a snow experience for the whole family - close to home."
Residents in Rehovot will have the opportunity to enjoy the winter snow within the city center's Founder's Garden this Tuesday, after the city decided to import snow directly from Israel's Mount Hermon for a special winter-time initiative.

At 10:00AM on Tuesday, six trucks will unload the freshly imported snow directly from the winter wonderland of Mount Hebron.

"All the residents are invited to come and enjoy a snow experience for the whole family - close to home," Rehovot Mayhor Rahamim Malul said in a statement.

"To reach the Hermon there is a need for time and resources, and not everyone can do it - so we brought the snow to them. We hope that the residents of the city will enjoy a communal experience in the founders' garden," said Youth Portfolio Coordinator Asaf Elbar in regards to the initiative.

Avi Yosefi, director of the Children and Youth Department said, "We received many requests from children and teenagers who for various reasons will not come to Mount Hermon, but very much want to participate in the snow experience. I am happy that with the help of all the relevant elements in the municipality, we are succeeding in realizing this experience for them and for others."

Snow fall is prevalent in areas like Jerusalem, Mount Hebron, Mount Hermon and the Golan Heights. In Rehovot, however, this sort of sight is far from normal, and will certainly give the residents of the city a lasting memory to bring into spring.

Entrance into the garden will be free.
