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.
“It is heartwarming that you from
America have come to give Israelis support and a hug,” he said.
Helmut, a resident of Indiana, said she felt “honored to wash windows and help
in any way during this tense time. We are happy to be here and give assistance.”
