Opening of Mandelbaum Gate to Pilgrims Pass to Bethlehem and Jordan at Christmas. Many pilgrims gather around the gate and wait in line, and Israeli and Jordanian guards supervise the crossing. Minister of Interior Yisrael Bar-Yehuda is present, examining the process. At the same time, Christmas ceremonies are held in Israel: prayers gather in churches for masses, and the Nativity scene and a decorated Christmas tree are shown.
