Another week, another update, and this one isn’t spamming you about GDPR!
Pour yourself a coffee, cut off some leftover cake, and read on to find out what’s going on in Givat Shmuel:
- The Iriyah’s Workshop on Buying Property in Israel has been pushed off by a day. It’s now happening Thursday, May 31st. The Workshop on Emergency Preparedness by Pikud Ha’oref is still next week, June 4th.
- Next week, Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks will be at Bar-Ilan giving a lecture on “The Contemporary Task of Judaism”.
- Also next week: our first ever Chai Sports Tournament, where you get to show off your athletic skills while raising money for Bat Melech’s Shelter for Women. RSVP while you still can!
- ICYMI: incumbent Givat Shmuel Mayor Yossi Brodni (accidently) joined The GSC, while his competition Gal Lenchner is intentionally looking to get involved. Meanwhile, a new movement called Aleinu is working hard to get Olim Chadashim on the City Council – if you’re interested in getting involved, send us a message, and we’ll put you in touch with the people in charge.
- Telecos are being forced to improve their customer support. It might take a few months, but look forward to shorter and ad-free wait times, actual people on the other side of the phone, and no more representatives transferring your call around like a hot potato.
- Visiting Jerusalem? Starting June 1st, all local Jerusalem buses will stop allowing you to refill your Rav Kav. While Android users can just refill them using the Rav Kav app, if you have an iPhone, you’re going to need to find a charging station, or buy a 5NIS card reader for your home PC. Alternatively you can take advantage of the Chofshi Yomi/Shavuei/Chodshi that covers the round trip from Givat Shmuel, and all the local buses in between.
