Yossef Stauber’s job is to guard the lions’ section at the Ramat Gan Safari Park just outside Tel Aviv. He stays in his observation tower all day, opening and closing the gates for visitors in their cars.
The rest of the time, between cars, he sits and learns.
Who says Haredim are not integrated into the Israeli job market? It just needs to eb the kind of job where you get a chance to sit and learn between customers.
Two things you need to know for this job: when to learn and when to open the gate – and never go downstairs before checking for lions.Yori Yanover
