What’s new in Israel of late

What’s different for tourists and volunteers in Jerusalem recently?

As well as big wave of inflation in recent times, mostly as a result by countries printing money to keep things running after the Covid lockdown years, a few frequent instances of terrorism, and in 2023 many Israelis protesting in the streets as a results to changes in government which many to perceive to weaken democracy.

For me as a tourist, it is now 3.9 Shekels to the Pound as opposed to 5.9 – 6.3 shekels ten years ago when I was living there which hurts a bit for us British visitors.

I got to visit last September, so let me explain some of the exciting new discoveries of late in the Holy Land shortly.
