The Story of Soroka

The Israelite's founding father, Abraham, was the first to settle in the land of Canaan. Abraham traveled widely throughout Canaan, surveying many of its cities, eventually settling in Beersheba, “the Well of the Oath”, where he later signed a historic peace treaty.

It is said that Beersheba symbolizes the events in our lives that cause us to call out to the Lord. Tragedy strikes, heartaches happen, and "He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His" (2 Chronicles 16:9). This symbol becomes a memorial in our hearts just as Beersheba’s altar, well, and tamarisk tree were to Abraham and Isaac. When God reveals His will to us or rescues us in some way, we can create a personal “Beersheba” in our hearts, providing us reassurance that God is fulfilling His plan.

Just as Beersheba connects us with the Lord, Soroka Medical Center saves lives and is a precious lifeline for the citizens of Israel's South.

At the heart of Beersheba lies Soroka Medical Center, caring for over 1,200,000 people. In these difficult times, Israel's leading medical center needs your support to protect and heal our tiniest and most vulnerable patients, the babies of the Negev. 

The Neonatal Department at Soroka Medical Center is the busiest in the country and cares for 18,000 newborns a year from birth to discharge in a distinctly family-oriented environment. Annually, more than 2,500 of these newborns require intensive or specialized medical and surgical care.

As the only medical center in the Negev, our mission is to serve the entire population that depends on us. With your help, Soroka will continue to provide the best care possible to the most vulnerable babies and their families in the new Neonatal building planned for 2022.

Donations of at least $40 will receive a welcoming gift featuring Marc Bennett's artwork "The History of the Star of David", suitable for framing, situated at Soroka Medical Center, representing strength and resilience. To learn more about the artwork, please visit
