Local social welfare organization Lemaan Achai got more than they bargained for when they hired a bee to give their pre-Rosh Hashanah activities a buzz. The bee was somewhat larger than expected but nevertheless quite friendly, especially to children. At one stage the bee fell to the ground, seemingly from an overdose of honey. It was fortunate to be helped up by a passer-by, because the mortality rate for bees left lying on their back is very high.
Life is never dull in Beit Shemesh.
