Municipality of Jerusalem prepares for Tishrei holidays

The city is installing festive lighting, removing junk, increasing its cleaning of streets, maintaining order in public spaces, and reinforcing the security of the light rail network

The Municipality of Jerusalem is preparing for the Tishrei holidays, and all of its departments will boost their activities so that public spaces will be clean, safe and well-organized for residents of the city as well as for the many visitors from Israel and overseas.

As it does every year, the Sanitation Division is increasing all of its cleaning work, including street washing, garbage removal, and around-the-clock manual and mechanical sweeping near synagogues, in neighborhoods, at tourist sites, events, and festivals all over the city.

The Municipal Enforcement and Policing Division will reinforce its enforcement and policing teams on holiday eves and holidays so the appearance of public spaces will be maintained. Efforts to remove obstacles and junk from public spaces will be increased, including during the intermediate days of the holidays, and the supervision and monitoring of waste disposal will be reinforced.

Security patrols will be conducted in parks and other public spaces to raise the sense of communal and personal security. The Emergency and Security Division will operate during the holidays in order to maintain readiness for any scenario or incident.

Due to the pilgrimage including the arrival of tourists from Israel and abroad, the light rail network's security system will be reinforced.

The Emergency and Security Division is working in cooperation with the Israel Police to ensure the safety of residents and tourists.

Drivers are requested to obey the provisions of the law and park their vehicles legally. It is recommended to park in parking lots, including the Mamilla, Karta, and Safra lots in the Old City area.

To keep public spaces clean, pleasant, and accessible after Sukkot, residents are asked to dispose of sukkah roof coverings properly immediately after the holiday.

The mayor of Jerusalem, Moshe Leon, said, “Happy Holiday, Jerusalem! The city is prepared and ready to welcome the New Year, which is upon us, and the other Tishrei holidays - for the sake of the residents and guests. We have also prepared to host the tens of thousands of visitors who are expected to come to the capital from all over the country, as well as tourists from around the world. Jerusalem is a symbol of holiness, spirituality, and coexistence. I invite everyone to enjoy our amazing city. Come enjoy one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Happy New Year to all the people of Israel."
