Soroka Medical Center: In the Eye of the Storm


On the eve of Rabbi Eckstein's visit to southern Israel, we received this update from Fellowship-supported Soroka Medical Center:


The Ben-Nahims were sitting in their Paris apartment at 10:30 P.M. on Sunday night when an Israeli embassy official called to notify them that their son, Gabriel, had been wounded in action in Gaza. An hour later, they were on board a flight to Israel.

“Thank You for Showing That You Care!”


Eighty-two-year-old Geula is suffering both mentally and physically during Operation Protective Edge. She recently broke her hip and needs to have an operation, but the hospital is in emergency mode and she will have to wait a bit longer for her operation.

In the meantime she is confined to a wheelchair. Although Geula has a protected room in her home, she is unable to go down the four stairs that lead to the room. When a siren sounds, she stays in her living room and prays.
