Big discount for brave Jerusalem residentby michael • June 24 2008
You should see the size of his wallet
In an effort to stem the flow of young people from Jerusalem, and to reward those that remain with something more concrete than the promised ability to ride a train to the northern suburbs by 2028, the Jerusalem city government recently released the Yerushalmi Card, a special photo ID for Jerusalem residents that offers steep discounts at numerous Jerusalem locations, from museums to parking lots.
It's not just theaters and museums (or festivals, movies and concerts), either; cardholders can expect - wait for it - a 25% discount on birthing classes and on post-childbirth checkups at the Tipat Halav clinic. Jerusalem wants you to have babies. And if you'd rather have a dog than a child, you're also eligible for 25% off a license for your puppy.
Not a bad deal for 18 shekels. The full list of discounts can be viewed at the Yerushalmi Card's official website.
