The afternoon daycare center (Tzaharon) is supposed to stay open until 15:30. In fact, it closes an hour earlier. Why? Because the Iriyah (municipality) pays for a guard only until 14:30. For working mothers, this is a fatal blow to their families' Parnassah.

The new school year has begun. In Beis Yaakov of Ramah Gimmel there are no less than 5 classes in Grade One and four classes in Grade Two, and they have a problem. The afternoon daycare center (Tzaharon) is supposed to stay open until 15:30. In fact, it closes an hour earlier. Why? Because the Iriyah (municipality) pays for a guard only until 14:30.

For working mothers, this is a fatal blow to their families' Parnassah. The mothers turned to the higher-ups in the Iriyah; Yeshayahu Ehrenreich, Yochanan Kirshenbaum, Moshe Abutbul. Nothing has changed yet.

The daycare cannot simply stay open another hour without protection, seeing as the school is right near a building site full of Arabs. The cost isn't large; approx.700 NIS.

Just to show how critical this is, we note the residents themselves have meanwhile begun their own collection.
