A delegation of non-Jews from the US – managers, engineers and educators – has arrived during tense times to volunteer at Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot. Members of the Friends of Israel organization, many of them visiting the country for the first time, volunteered to wash dishes, prepare food and help out with receiving hematology patients.

They were welcomed by hospital director Prof. Ya’acov Yahav, who said that the hospital is ready for any continuing terror attacks in he area.
