This Rosh HaShana
We pray for peace and for the security of Israel
We are profoundly thankful for the medical staff at Soroka Medical Center for their heroic efforts in saving the lives and healing the wounds of so many during Operation Protective Edge
We pray for a Refuah Shelemah for those whose path to recovery continues;
We draw inspiration form the wounded IDF soldiers who rushed from Soroka back to battle as soon as they could;
And from the encouragement and gratitude of an entire nation who visited and supported the wounded soldiers, their families and our staff;
For those of you who called and sent notes, prayers and good wishes.
During Operation Protective Edge,
Soroka Medical Center treated
1,259 wounded, including 775 IDF Soldiers.
Your generous contributions to our Special Emergency Funds enables the purchase of urgently needed emergency life-saving equipment.
We thank you for your gifts and outreach — it truly makes a difference.
Please join Soroka Medical Center in fulfilling our mission as
Israel’s Iron Dome for Health
Your help is essential for Soroka
As we prepare for the future
With our Warmest Regards,
Ken Abramowitz, President; Caroline Freidfertig, Secretary;
Ruth Steinberg, Treasurer Carlos M. Guttierez Jr; Joseph Koren
