US to move its embassy to Jerusalem in May!

US officials have announced that the US will "move" the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in May to coincide with Israel's 70th anniversary celebrations.

This May they will move the embassy by repurposing the current consulate in the Arnona neighborhood of Jerusalem to function as the embassy. The employees of the consulate will become employees of the embassy, and the Ambassador with a small team will work out of this embassy. The current embassy in Tel Aviv will become a consulate though most activities will continue to function out of this location as they have until now. All this will happen while they plan and build a new embassy building in Jerusalem that will be planned to be open and functioning before the end of next year.

And, Israel's Foreign Ministry officials have announced that Israel is in talks with 10 more countries to move their embassies to Jerusalem  as well.

Way to go!
