(JNS) Israel’s Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz this week announced that a new high-speed rail line connecting Jerusalem and Tel Aviv will become operational within three months.

The rail will launch March 30, exactly as forecasted by the former CEO of Israel Railways, Boaz Tzafrir, in 2014.

“I made a promise, and I will fulfill it, Katz said. “This coming Pesach, we will allow all of Israel to come en masse to Jerusalem, via the express train from Tel Aviv.”
