Police at Play at ALEH Bnei Brak
What does an Israeli policeman do when he isn’t giving out tickets, making arrests or keeping the peace? He warms himself in the sun — and has an ALEH child join him in the adventure.
On a bright sunny day last week, the local Bnei Brak special police unit surprised the children at ALEH with a visit to their residence, and offered to take the children outside for a breath of fresh air.
The special police unit was established in several cities across the country and includes policemen and inspectors from the local areas who work together for the benefit of the community. This group was assigned exclusively to Bnei Brak and their goal is to raise the standards of the city’s residents. They can be reached by dialing 100 or 106.
The police group decided to expand their assistance by volunteering their time to the people in the city in a number of ways. For example, they provide help to senior citizens by painting their homes, distributing food parcels to those in need, and more.
This time, ALEH Bnei Brak was the winner of this extra special attention. The policemen and inspectors took a day off from their regular duty and decided to spend time with the children of ALEH.
Each member of the group pushed a boy or girl in a wheel chair to the Levine Fields where the children basked in the warm sun, inhaled the clear air and delighted in the lush green grass and flowering plants scattered throughout the park. Everyone had a wonderful time and both the children and the policemen benefited tremendously from the visit.
