JERUSALEM (JTA) -- The Sea of Galilee's water level rose by about half a foot following a weekend of rain and snow, sending its levels well above the lower red line.
Even with the rise, the Galilee remains four yards shy of being what is considered full.
The lower red line is a government-recommended level below which water should no longer be drawn from the lake to prevent damage to the ecosystem.
Nearly 8 inches of snow (about 20 centimeters) fell in the northern Golan Heights. Snow also fell in Hebron and in the Gush Etzion bloc.
