The heavy rains with which Israel was blessed this past winter caused so many people to ask, "How much has the water level of the Kinneret risen?"

This body of water, which is a major source of water for the entire country, has a number of names in addition to Lake Kinneret – "Sea of Galilee", "Sea of Tiberias" and "Lake Ginossar".
