UNIFAX Galva Precinct Seat Lost On 224 Board of Education JERUSALEM (UPI) - Christians in the Holy Land welcomed the opening of Easter week festivities today and Jews in Israel prepared for their own Joyous holiday of Passover. More than 20,000 foreign visitors of both faiths were expected to arrive by air in Tel Aviv during the 24 hours preceding the start of Passover today at sundown. Hotels in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa reported occupancy ranging between 80 and 95 per cent. The festive spirit showed its first signs Sunday when about 2,000 pilgrims bearing palm fronds wallced the 2M!-milc route that Christians believe Jesus traversed into the old city of Jerusalem a vieek before His crucifixion. Despite fears of Arab guerrilla attacks and a reinforced contingent of Israeli traffic police, security measures were low-keyed. The two-hour-long Palm Sun day procession began with a 10- minute service at the Sanctuary of the Palms in Bethoage, on the slopes of the Mount of Olives. Winding around to the garden of Gethsemane and the tomb of the Virgin Mary, the march continued through St. Stephen's gate of the walled old city and down the Via Dolorosa. Carrying palms from nearby Jericho and Nazareth, Jesus' boyhood home, the Catholic and Protestant pilgrims were joined by school children chanting hymns in Arabic and Latin.
