There is a vast demographic, geographic, cultural and historic difference between Haifa and Hackney in east London, but listening to the guest health specialists from Homerton Hospital in Hackney discussing their work with their hosts at Rambam Medical Center makes it clear that they have much in common.

Haifa is twinned with Hackney, an area with a large Jewish population that dwindled as the immigrants of the early part of the 20th century moved out to the greener and more prosperous suburbs.
