Will the Knesset display a Christmas tree this week to commemorate the holiday on behalf of the Christian citizens and MKs?
No, it will not.
Speaker of the House Yuli Edelstein said he does not see the idea of installing a Christmas tree as being appropriate. Many MKs have seen it as a provocation and consider it unacceptable. (source: Ladaat)
As it should not be.
Despite that, if you really want, you can buy from Hadar Geula these beautiful Christmas-themed cookies with a Badatz hechsher.. for 20 NIS those better be really good cookies!
