5th & 6th Graders to Assist Jerusalem Tourists
A group of 5th and 6th graders will take a course being given by Jerusalem City Hall to prepare them to become the city’s ambassadors, to assist the many tourists visiting the capital as well as towards bringing the information to residents, their families and others.
Whoever dreamed this up must not have children of their own or they would immediately understand what a bad idea this is. Jewish children on the cusp of puberty being exposed to goyim traveling the world - young European men backpacking and missionaries looking for opportunities to share their faith? Our children can not even be assumed to be safe in our own neighborhoods any more! It doesn't say a thing about adult supervision. What!? They'll send them out on the streets alone with instructions to approach strangers who look lost? How thoughtless can you be!???
