When I reached Tami Siboni by phone and asked her if it was a good time to talk, she responded that if I were to wait for a good time, I would never find one.

Siboni directs the Jerusalem Municipality department that oversees emergency services for homeless people. And nearly a week after the cold weather and sleet had rolled into the city, it was still keeping her and her employees extremely busy.
