More than 20 cm of snow fell in Jerusalem today making it the worst snowstorm to hit the Holy City in 20 years.

Schools were closed, transportation was disrupted and some roads were shut down.
But some took time to enjoy the rare snow event – Israeli President Shimon Peres built a snowman and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was pummeled from the right and the left – with snowballs.
