In Tel Aviv: Levinsky Park
Levinsky Park is a hub of activity
Thanks to massive efforts in and around this patch of green near the Central Bus Station in the sketchy, rundown Neve Shaanan neighborhood, many low-income and impoverished Israelis and foreign-born undocumented workers, refugees, and asylum seekers can obtain a modicum of basic services. Nongovernmental and volunteer humanitarian organizations, mostly, offer food, shelter, childcare, legal advice, and health care. Area adults and children can enjoy, too, nurturing activities that often lift their spirits and fuel their hopes for solutions to our seemingly intransigent human problems.
