More hotel rooms on the way in Israel

Due to a growing shortage of hotel rooms in Israel, the Israel Ministry of Tourism has approved approximately $57 million in grants for six projects to build 375 new hotel rooms in Jerusalem and Nazareth. In addition to the new rooms, the grant will also provide for the renovation of the Dan Pearl Hotel near the Jaffa and New Gates in Jerusalem.
