Special Notice about Lag B'Omer
Shocking but true.
In the last few years, there is a gruesome new "custom" associated with Lag B'Omer.
Children and teens collect kittens, puppies or cats and throw them live into the bonfires. This usually occurs at a late hour - when the kids are unsupervised after the adults have left, or with children at bonfires that are unattended by adults.
Look out for a carton near the bonfire that seems not to contain food and equipment. Please keep an eye on any bonfires near you , and join us in patrolling the fires, to prevent this happening.
If you find such a carton, please immediately remove and keep safe and call Khaya: 050-5909025 or the municipality 106, even at a late hour, or the next morning.
If you would like to join us in organized patrols, please call Khaya, as above, or write to us:firstname.lastname@example.org
