RBS Needs its own POOL
Baruch Hashem all neighborhoods in Beit Shemesh have been growing steadily for years. Access to neighborhood pools, however, has not been keeping up with that growth. In fact, since the closing of the "private" pools in RBS, access to pools - for swimming lessons, exercise and relief from the heat - has diminished, just as population growth and aliyah make the need that much greater. Swimming lessons are expensive enough without adding on transportation costs. And it's hard to learn to swim when you don't have access to a pool to practice, or when there are so many people in the pool you can't even move. How are we to fulfill Chazal's mandate to teach our children to swim without sufficient access to pools? If you think the iryah should be involved in zoning and building a pool for the residents of RBS, please sign, below - and pass it on to you friends!
