PSA: Demonstration Wednesday By Iryat Bet Shemesh For Lemaan Achai

Important Announcement: Demonstration Wednesday!!
PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT BY RABBI DOV LIPMAN

Dear Friends,
On Wednesday, the city council is voting for the 2011 budget. The budget includes hundreds of thousands of shekalim for worthy chesed organizations but zero money for Lemaan Achai because extremist elements have instructed the Mayor not to give Lemaan Achai money.
Lemaan Achai provides all the social welfare services for Ramat Bet Shemesh including social workers to the point that the city's welfare department simply refers everyone in RBS to Lemaan Achai and the city does not have to expend resources there. The city's welfare department is receiving 46 million NIS in the budget and not one shekel of it is set aside for Lemaan Achai.
We are protesting this injustice and the Mayor's caving to the demands of extremists elements this coming Wednesday at 5:00p.m. at City Hall. Please come and join us at this very important event.
Thanks, Dov Lipman

  1. It is simply untrue "that the city's welfare department simply refers everyone in RBS to Lemaan Achai"

  2. They may or may not refer people, I don't know.

    I do know however that Lema'an Achai does do much of the welfare dept's work in RBSA.
