Hatzalah ups service to south’s Shoah survivors

The United Hatzalah emergency response service is expanding its outreach efforts to Holocaust survivors in the range of Gaza rockets.

“For many of these survivors, the recent sirens and explosions brought back old fears and flashbacks to their experiences 70 years prior, reigniting their trauma,” says founder and president Eli Beer. “Our visits are designed to identify and monitor deteriorating medical conditions to ensure that prompt and effective treatment can be implemented before irreversible or fatal damage occurs.”

The program, Ten Kavod, is supported by a recent grant from the Claims Conference, which looks to care for Holocaust survivors.
