The Mount Herzl National Memorial Hall was unveiled last Thursday and today, on Israel’s Memorial Day, it was opened to families of the fallen for the first time. Although it remains under construction and closed to the general public for at least two more months, a video recorded from within the hall was posted by the Ministry of Defense.
The Jerusalem Municipality announced the opening of a new section of the Begin Highway on Sunday. The newly opened segment adds six lanes, four interchanges, ten bridges and two tunnels, all without a single new traffic light. The new road runs from Malcha (pictured) to Dov Yosef St. (~2km).
