The city of Marseille, France, has given a bronze fountain to the city of Jerusalem as a show of friendship. Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat on Tuesday thanked Marseille Mayor Jean Claude Gaudin for his gift of the "Fontaine Longchamp," which stands more than 11 feet high. The fountain, which is on its way to Israel, is an exact replica of the famous fountain on Marseille's Boulevard Longchamp.
