Dear Residents,
Happy Lag Ba’omer!

Despite all the difficulties and complications, the ganim of Efrat opened and operated successfully on Lag Ba'Omer. The wonderful assistants greeted the children with love, and hugs and kisses from a distance! Our deepest thanks to the assistants in the ganim and the schools who worked hard to enable the ganim to operate today, and to the staff and director of the Education Department for their many efforts to maintain the rhythm of the learning for the students.

The Social Services Division has established a hotline to help residents understand their rights during the Corona era. The hotline will help answer questions about rights, and offer assistance in filling out forms for social security, income tax and various government offices. All residents may use the hotline - those who are salaried, self-employed, senior citizens, and those who are out of work. The hotline operates on Sunday-Thursday from 9:00-13:00. Phone: 0732109372, Email: bishvili@efrat.muni.il or shanyfruman@gmail.com

Library: The library staff is currently preparing to return to regular operations. We are awaiting the arrival of partitions that will enable the librarians to work safely, and we will provide detailed guidelines for borrowing books in the near future.

In light of the military's instructions, Palestinian workers are now able to work in private areas.
The workers must adhere to all Ministry of Health guidelines: taking temperature, wearing a mask, and keeping a safe distance. We emphasize that it is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the employees are following the guidelines.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, May 13 at 17:00, The Resilience Center will hold a special zoom meeting for people over 60 years of age on the topic of Strengthening Personal Resilience and the Challenges of Returning to Routine.
