Better City to Arise on Ruins of Tiberias, Says Palestine Visitor

The recent cloudburst in Tiberias has its silver lining as far as the development of that ancient city is concerned, is the opinion of Judge Bernard A. Rosenblatt, who recently returned to New York after an extended stay in Palestine.

“In the long run, Tiberias will gain from the catastrophe,” said the Judge, “for a new city will necessarily arise, better and finer than anything in the past, especially since some of the surrounding hills are already covered with modern homes, which were unaffected by the disaster.”

Whether it’s local, domestic or foreign, if it’s news about Jewish life you’ll find it in the Jewish Daily Bulletin.
