new plan for National Service has Haredim supervising the beaches of Israel

Minister of Environmental Protection Amir Peretz has announced that his ministry is putting together a plan to form a new unit that will function under the National Service plan. This unit will be comprised of hundreds of citizens from the Haredi and Arabs sectors.

I can see it now - Haredim running to volunteer for Sheirut Leumi to supervise the beaches. There will be rabbis in suits and hats wandering up and down the beaches of Israel. filled with bikini-clad females sunbathing.. While I know some people who might love such a job, I can't believe they expect this to work with this crowd as the target of volunteers..

  1. There's a hysterically funny skit by the classic Israeli comedy troupe "geshash hachiver", where SHAS takes over the lifeguarding services in Tel Aviv. I believe the routine goes in the direction whereby a lifeguard actually drowns a woman because she's wearing a less-than-modest bathing suit. You have to get your hands on it. (or maybe just wait until it becomes a reality according to your post...)
