Winter Storm Brings Snow

A winter storm brought snow to parts of Israel. Northern Israel got most of the snowfall, with the Golan Heights reporting 15cm of snow. Police closed major roads in the area to traffic, and schools shuttered for the rest of the week. In Jerusalem, heavy rain and sleet fell, but no snow as of this writing. Temperatures are expected to drop during the course of the day across the country and flood warnings were issued in coastal and low-lying areas. Once the snow melts, it will help replenish the Sea of Galilee (“Kinneret”), which is Israel’s main fresh water supply. We are grateful for the abundant rain! Please pray, however, for safety for all on the roads, as well as protection from flooding. Please also pray that people will use wisdom and caution as they venture from their homes during this storm.
