As we put this page together last week, with the cold weather and piled snow weighing down our mood, our heart soared when we discovered pictures of flowering trees in Jerusalem’s Botanical Gardens.
We hoped to bright your mood too, with our cheery pictures of cherry blossoms.
But truth in journalism compels us to confess that shortly after last week’s paper went to press, Israel’s early spring was buffeted by a serious snowfall.
This is what Jerusalem actually looked like as you were reading your Jewish Standard.
Even with the snow, though, Jerusalem has beauty that Jersey can only aspire to.
