Sacred Jerusalem church to reopen as Israel backtracks

(HAARETZ) — The Church of the Holy Sepulchre will reopen Wednesday in response to Israeli steps to solve the ongoing crisis rocking relations between the Israeli government and the Christian community, three days after the church was closed in protest.

According to a statement released by the heads of the major churches, the church will reopen for visitors at 4 A.M. local time.

Israel opted on Tuesday to take steps to resolve its ongoing crisis with church leaders and the Christian community that led to their indefinite shuttering of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre on Sunday. The Israeli government will freeze a controversial bill that recently spurred the crisis, while the Jerusalem municipality will postpone the collection of taxes from church-owned properties.
