You can frequently find Emuna Outreach in the hot stops of Israel, such as in the areas of missile attacks in the south and on the Gaza Border. But lately, one of the hottest flashpoints in Israel is Jerusalem, especially the portion that borders on the Arab neighborhoods.
The Police in Israel have suffered from bad raps after several scandals in its upper echelons were uncovered. Yet, the rank-and-file Israeli "blues" (the Israeli nickname for cops - "greens" are IDF soldiers) are doing a phenomenally dedicated job to keep the streets of Jerusalem safe. Sure, terror is on the rise and one must be alert when walking down the streets of Jerusalem, but the press doesn't tell the story of the many terrorist attempts that are foiled.
Emuna Outreach and yours truly had the privilege of spending a morning recently with police forces in the Old City of Jerusalem. We saw first hand what they do and in turn, we gave them a talk about emuna under pressure. They appreciated that because their whole daily lives are pressure-packed. Not only did we speak to Jewish police, but to Arab and Druze police as well. Emuna is universal and everyone deserves to be connected to Hashem.
