  • The Mission Continues

    As in the past so it remains today - we were and still are under the selfsame commitment to adhere to the directions of the Gedolei Yisrael, who stand guard against breaches of purity threatening our camp. When we were required to ask – we asked. When we were instructed to depart – we left. The moment we are summoned back to raise the flag, every other consideration is pushed to the side and we answer: We are ready!

Ashdod Residents Shocked: 'Beis Malka' School Vandalized

Street gang vandalized the 'Beis Malka' girls-school in Ahshdod on Shabbos afternoon

The principals of the Belzer 'Beis Malka' girls-school were shocked and dismayed to discover that the school building had been vandalized on Shabbos.

Upon entering the school on Motzaei Shabbos, a horrific sight met their eyes: the walls had been smeared with paint, windows had been shattered, graffiti filled the interior walls and the locks of the cupboards had been broken. The nurses' room of the school had been vandalized too, with expensive medical equipment severely damaged. After the initial shock had set in, the principals discovered that school property had also been stolen.

It is still too early to know if police will be able to apprehend those who are responsible for the vandalism, as police officers who arrived at the site could not find any fingerprints. It is believed that a street gang broke in to the school on Shabbos afternoon, and, wearing gloves so as not to leave any fingerprints, vandalized the school and stole expensive equipment.
Rabbi Ephraim Weber, Chairman of the Belzer institutions in Ashdod and a city council member, told 'Etrog' that the police must do everything in their power to apprehend the gangsters.

Weber also slammed the Ashdod Police Department for not doing enough to apprehend the street gangs that have hit the religious neighborhoods of Ashdod hard in the past few months, causing damages in property and injuring innocent residents. "It is not supposed to take so much time to find these gangsters. They are outnumbered by the police forces and should have been arrested by now. The police must stop this phenomenon immediately", Weber said.

Several gang members also tried to break in to the local supermarket on Shabbos, however they were discovered by local residents who scared them off.
