Israel Police Prepared For Opening of New School Year in the Chareidi Sector


A spokesman in the Israel Police Shai district announced preparations for the opening of the 5779 school year in the chareidi sector have been completed as schools will be opening on Sunday, 1 Elul throughout Yehuda and Shomron.

As part of the preparations for the return of children to schools in the chareidi sector, the Israel Police will increase its presence in the vicinity of educational institutions and in general, in cities and towns in Yehuda and Shomron.

Police, border police and soldiers will be deployed in the vicinity of educational institutions and traffic arteries in Yehuda and Shomron in order to provide the necessary response to the public in terms of security and movement, and everything possible will be done to ensure the safety and well-being of the children.

The Israel Police asks the accompanying parents to exercise extreme caution and to ensure that passengers are stopped and unloaded safely, that proper restraint devices are used correctly, and that driving is appropriate and cautious, while giving pedestrians a right of way as the children head to school.

  1. Title misleading.
    The new school year is opening for the whole country. Happens to be the policing is required most in places where Torah is ignored. The secular high schools where the police search for knives and drugs and are present on the surrounding streets after school to prevent violence on the street and public transport.
    Go stand outside a cheder or Bais Yaakov when they finish, the Torah learning is evident on their faces and their behaviour.

  2. The reason the police are there is because it’s in Shomron and Yehudah and the children need extra protection there. Only the Chereidi schools open on Rosh Chodesh Elul. The others start on Sept. 1.

    littleema’s comment is not true. I live across from a Cheredi Talmud Torah (cheider) and it’s very clean And nobody is ignoring traffic rules.
