Dr. Tzvi Yehuda Wilbur leaves his home in Jerusalem’s Kiryat Moshe neighborhood by 6:30 every morning and devotes eight hours to seeing pediatric patients at Leumit clinics in the Binyamin Regional Council. Once a week he teaches medical ethics at Tel Aviv University’s Sackler Faculty of Medicine – where he earned his MD degree in 2006 – and every other week, at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa.

In addition, Wilbur learns Talmud with a study partner three times a week, organizes monthly Shabbatons for Sackler and Technion medical students, and is trying to establish an affordable English-speaking retirement community in Safed in the hope of attracting thousands of American Zionists.
