In Tiberias, two eucalyptus trees, about 80 years old, were cut down to make way for a “Kohanim road” — a road that will allow Kohanim to drive through the center of the city without passing near the cemetery (the Kohanim, a lineage of priests, are traditionally forbidden from being in the vicinity of cemeteries.) Originally residents were told the trees would be cut down in order to pave a broad road with four lanes.
