The haredi volunteers at the United Hatzalah rescue organization have welcomed a new group into their midst – Arabs from east Jerusalem.

Asli Muhammad pulls ahead on his motorbike, driving in front of the ambulance driven by fellow volunteer Aharon Beck as they enter the Arab neighborhood of Beit Hanina in east Jerusalem.

Stopping several meters past the gas station at the entrance of the neighborhood, Muhammad and Beck explain to me why it is so significant that they are standing at that spot.
