Due to the latest ceasefire declaration and the instructions of the Home Front Command it's been decided that all the final summer events will take place as planned.

These include:

On Thu 28/8 - Youth Day with Mosh Ben Ari and Chutzot Anava with Rinat Gabai followed by Shimon Parnas and Nitza Termin.

For more information about all these events, see the "Summer Events" category on the app/website and at the bottom of this page under "Related".

Update Sun 24/8, 14:00 >>

Due to security situation and the ban of the Home Front Command over events with over 1,000 people, it has been decided to postpone the Street Festival that was planned to take place from Monday to Wednesday.

The "Cinema at the Park" events that were meant to take place on Sun and Tue at the Anava Park, will be taking place instead at the Amphi of Ironi Bet (Rabin High School).

The Modiin Village events and Sporty Monday will be taking place as planned.

As for other events later on this week, including "Chutzot Anava" with Rinat Gabay and Youth Day with Mosh Ben Ari, notice will be given during the week.


Update: Thu 21/8, 22:00 >>

At 20:50 a siren was heard throughout the city - it seems that there was no fall out in Modiin. The Iron Dome intercepted one rocket that was fired at our region.

The Iriya and security forces are calling all residents to continue to follow the Home Front Command instructions. For now there is no change in these instructions and the ban on gatherings of more than 1,000 people continues.


Update: Wed 20/8, 06:30 & 13:30 >>

Due to the security situation (and the Home Front Command ban on gatherings of more than 1,000 people), tomorrow's "Celebrating the Summer" event with Shiri Maimon and Shimon Buskila has been cancelled.

The "Anava Nights" show with Avi Singolda that was planned for Saturday night as been postponed to Fri 29/8 at 17:00.

All other events, including Kabbalat Shabbat in Nature, the Modiin Village and the Mobile Zula are taking place as planned.


Due to the recent escalation, the Home Front Command changed the security policy for the Modiin area, thereby banning gatherings of more than 1,000 people in an open area.

In the case of a siren residents have 90 seconds to reach a secure space. The first priority is to go inside the home Mamad, or the secure apartment space, and stay there for a full 10 minutes following the siren. Residents who are outside their house are recommended to reach safe spaces in commercial centers or enter a building and go to the second floor or to one floor underneath the top floor and wait there.

Residents and building committees are also requested to leave the front doors of their buildings open for the benefit of passers-by, so they can find shelter in a safe place when siren goes off.

The Modiin police have instructed that, in case of a rocket falling within the city, residents must not approach any shards of the Iron Dome rockets or rockets fired towards the city, but immediately report to the Modiin Police or the city hotline at 106.

Updates and further instructions can be received at the 104 hotline number of the Home Front Command or the city's Moked 106.


Update, Mon 28/7, 15:00 >>

This week too, all city events have been cancelled including: Sporty Monday, Cinema at Anava Park, Summer event at Rabin Park, Chotzot Anava Fair, Kabbalat Shabbat in Nature, The Mobile zula and Anava Nights.

The events at Heichal HaTarbut and other private events will go ahead as usual (unless another notification is issued - see the 'Summer Events' category for specific updates).

Kaytanot are continuing as usual.

Due to the concerns about rocket fire towards the city, the Iriya employees situated at the caravan site on Dam HaMaccabim have been moved to the Ironi Aleph school building, where the employees of the various departments will be receiving residents in need of their services. Infrastructure department employees working at the site next to Maccabim have been moved to the Maoz HaMaccabim school.

The Iriya is asking to remind the city's residents that the instructions from the Home Front Command should be still fully applied, staying for a full 10 minutes in a secure space during a siren.

Residents and building committees are also requested to leave the front doors of their buildings open for the benefit of passersby, so they can find shelter in a safe place when siren goes off.

Now that a lot of summer camps have finished and the majority of kids are at home, the Iriya recommends to instruct them on how to act during a siren. The Home Front Command has made a few clips that help explaining it to kids:

The Modiin police have instructed that, in case of a rocket falling within the city, residents must not approach any shards of the Iron Dome rockets or rockets fired towards the city, but immediately report to the Modiin Police or the city hotline at 106.

Update, Fri 18/7, 17:30 >>

The Home Front Command changed the security policy for the Modiin area, thereby forbidding gatherings of more than 1,000 people.

Kaytanot and Beit HaSefer shel HaChofesh HaGadol will operate as usual on Sunday.

The frequency of the silent channel to hear sirens in Modiin is 93.3FM, and it will operate throughout Shabbat.

City in Solidarity!

It was heart warming to see thousands of our city's residents arriving to Heichal HaTarbut car park and later to the Iriyah building to donate food for our soldiers' Shabbat.

For those who didn't yet get a chance and still wants to donate, please contact Moked 106.

ביום שלישי בבוקר, לאחר תחילת מבצע "צוק איתן" ברצועת עזה ובשל ההסלמה והרחבת טווח ירי הטילים החלה עיריית מודיעין מכבים רעות בהכנות לקראת מעבר לחירום והכנת העיר לשעת חירום.

העירייה קיימה הערכת מצב בהשתתפות בכירי העירייה, נציגי פיקוד העורף, נציגי המשטרה וכל גורמי המקצוע הרלוונטיים.

עדכונים וקישורים לעירייה ולפיקוד העורף

בעירייה הדגישו כי על פי הנחיית פיקוד העורף, נכון ליום שלישי, אין כל שינוי בהנחיות להתנהגות תושבי העיר.

עדכונים שוטפים ניתן למצוא במקומות הבאים:

כמו כן, בכל שאלה בתחומי ההתגוננות האזרחית ניתן לפנות למרכז המידע של פיקוד העורף בטלפון 104.

בנוסף, מומלץ להתעדכן באמצעות כלי התקשורת השונים.

מרחבים מוגנים וזמן התרעה במודיעין-מכבים-רעות

על פי מפת ההגנה של פיקוד העורף לתושבי מודיעין מכבים רעות יש זמן התרעה של כ-90 שניות להגיע למרחב מוגן בהישמע אזעקת צבע אדום.

העדיפות הראשונה היא להיכנס לממ"ד הביתי, מרחב מוגן דירתי, ולשהות בו עשר דקות לאחר השמע האזעקה.

במידה ויש תושבים הנמצאים מחוץ לבית בעת האזעקה מומלץ להגיע למרחבים מוגנים הנמצאים במרכזים המסחריים או להיכנס לבניינים ולעלות בחדר המדרגות לקומה השנייה ולהמתין שם.

כידוע, העיר מודיעין נבנתה לאחר החלת התקן לבניית ממ"דים בבתי התושבים ולכן היא נחשבת לאחת הערים המוגנות ביותר בישראל.

חלק מהבתים במכבים ורעות נבנו גם כן עם ממ"ד פרטי, אך רובם מסתמכים על מקלטים ציבוריים הנמצאים ברובע.

ביום שלישי עברו סיירי מחלקת הביטחון של העירייה בכל המקלטים הציבוריים שבאחריותה ובמקביל עדכנה את המפעילים המחזיקים בציוד במקלטים כי עליהם להיערך לפינוי מהיר של המקלטים.

נכון ליום שלישי, בהתאם להוראות פיקוד העורף, המקלטים עדיין סגורים.

יש לציין כי העירייה העבירה לתושבים מפתחות למנעולים על מנת להקל עליהם את פתיחת המקלטים בעת הצורך כאשר בנוסף גם לסיירי העירייה יש את המפתחות והם ערוכים לפתיחה מהירה של המקלטים. יש לציין כי המקלטים מתוחזקים בצורה טובה זמינים ומוכנים לכל מקרה.

קיום אירועים בעיר

במוקד העירייה הוכנה רשימה של כל האירועים הגדולים המתקיימים בעיר בימים הקרובים. בהערכת המצב הוחלט שלא לבטל את האירועים המתקיימים בעיר, אך במידה ותהיה החמרה במצב או נפילת טילים באזור העיר יישקל מחדש קיומם.

מערכת החינוך

במערכת החינוך הוחלט על המשך קיום הלימודים כסדרם בבית הספר של החופש הגדול ובכל הקייטנות של עמותת סחלבים הפועלות בעיר.

מנהל החינוך העירוני בשיתוף עם מחלקת הביטחון של העירייה ערכו תדרוכים וריענון נהלים לצוותים החינוכיים בעיר.

סיירים של מחלקת הביטחון של העירייה עברו בגני הילדים ובבתי הספר והנחו את מפעילי בית הספר של החופש הגדול והקייטנות לוודא כי הממ"דים, כמו גם המקלטים בבתי הספר בעיר, מוכנים לשימוש.

בנוסף החליטה העירייה להעביר ממקומם גנים בעיר הפועלים ללא מרחבים מוגנים.

  • ילדי הקייטנה הנמצאת בגן תור (רחוב תכלת) – יועברו החל מיום רביעי למבנה גן עיט הממוקם ברחוב פז בשכונת אבני חן.
  • הגנים של "מאורות מודיעין", מרחוב יהלום, יועברו למבנה ביה"ס דרכי יהודה.
  • גני "מאורות מודיעין" הממוקמים בשכונת משואה, יועברו למבנה האולפנה.
  • ילדי גני אלו"ט הפועלים ברחוב יהלום יעברו למבנה חט"צ עידנים, כאשר הגן אליו יעברו ילדי אלו"ט הוא גן המותאם לילדים בעלי צרכים מיוחדים.

אירוח תושבים מהדרום

מהעירייה נמסר כי במוקד העירייה מתקבלות פניות של תושבים המעוניינים לארח משפחות וילדים מאזורי העימות. עובדי המוקד העירוני מרכזים את פניות תושבים ובמידת הצורך יתאמו בין המשפחות מהדרום. עוד נמסר, כי במערכת החינוך העירונית נערכים בהתאם לקליטת ילדים מהדרום.

מוקד העיריה: 106 או 08-9726020.
