First-Ever Solar Sukkah in Kfar Saba

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

This Sukkot, the residents of the city of Kfar Saba are not only communing with nature by sitting in the biblically-assigned booths present throughout the rest of Israel, but by doing so in a green-friendly way.

The city’s municipality is featuring a first-of-its-kind Solar Sukkah which will operate exclusively on solar power.

A series of solar panels near the sukkah at the Kfar Saba municipal park will soak of the rays during the day, and power LED lights inside the large structure by night.

Israeli, Palestinian Stopped in Self-Immolation Attempts

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

Police prevented an Israeli man and a Palestinian man from setting themselves on fire.

Tuesday’s attempted self-immolations occurred in front of government buildings — in the Israeli city of Kfar Saba and in the West Bank town of Dura.

Both came as a result of economic distress, according to The Jerusalem Post.

The Post, which did not identify the Israeli man, reported that the Palestinian was Khaled Abu Rabia, who has two wives and 10 children. He works for the Palestinian Authority police force.

The wave of self-immolations began July 14 when Moshe Silman, an Israeli, set himself on fire to protest his dire economic situation. He died a week later from his burns.

Since then, several Israelis have attempted self-immolation. And on Sunday, a Palestinian — Abu Nada of Gaza City — died after setting himself on fire.

Probation to Policeman who Stole from Tzadakah Boxes

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

A Kfar Saba court yesterday sentenced a former member of the Border Police to six-months probation and 300 hours of community service for stealing around NIS 200 from some ten charity boxes which local synagogues keep in police stations in the Sharon area.

The former policeman was arrested three years ago, after a security camera captured him emptying out a charity box in the Kfar Saba police station. He admitted to committing at least ten more similar robberies, and was forced to resign from the force, after 21 years of service.

In January, a different member of the Border Police was arrested on suspicion of committing robbery and assault in Be’er Sheva, using his service weapon to force residents to hand over cash, jewelry and a cellular phone. And a month before, a Border Policeman was sentenced to 13 months in jail and 15 additional months’ probation for selling arms illegally.
