ON A chilly early May evening, youth field worker Yotam Refaely made his rounds in and around Jerusalem’s central bus station.

His eyes scanned left and right as he walked through dark alleyways and by out-of-theway corners. He stopped often to peer into abandoned buildings. Refaely was on the lookout for at-risk teens, especially homeless youth, who are known to congregate ‒ even sleep ‒ in these places.
