The Jewish National Fund has distributed more than 1,000 Christmas trees to members of Jerusalem’s Christian community. The pine trees from JNF forests were given away free to foreign diplomats, monasteries, churches and private citizens. This is the eighth year that JNF has been supplying Christmas trees to Jerusalem’s Christian residents.
