      Lech Lecha Jeep Program To Rescue Jerusalemites in Snow


      While Jerusalem's high school students will be sent on vacation when the expected heavy snows start to accumulate, youth at the Lech Lecha High School on jeeps will be reporting to school for extra hours. Rabbi David Samson, dean of Lech Lecha, is making available his fleet of Land Rover jeeps and students to rescue cars and people from the expected Jerusalem area snow.

      The students will arrive equipped with chains and ropes to pull cars, and shovels to clear paths and driveways. In urgent cases, they will transport persons to destinations in the capital. Contact: Yuval 054-567-6723.

      The Lech Lecha High School is for youth at risk who have difficulty coping with the convential classroom environment and go on jeep expeditions twice per week to study Tanach [bible], history, and nature, alongside regular studies.
