United Hatzalah Elad Branch's Campaign

Please join us in raising funds for United Hatzalah of Israel. We are doing this in memory of the victims of the Elad terror attack and in support of the entire Elad community.

Message to sponsors:

On the evening of May 5, 2022, Israel’s Independence Day, two Palestinians from a village near Jenin carried out a terrorist attack in the central Israeli city of Elad, using an axe and a knife.

They killed three civilians and wounded four, two of them critically, beginning their killing spree in the late evening. Normal life and routines stopped and with a notification from the Dispatch Center, “Ibn Gabirol street… in the square… a serious injury” Moshe Sa’adon, a team leader for United Hatzalah EMS responders, took off.

The scene he described is harrowing: "Something was wrong about this incident that was unlike any other. The horrific injuries, the panic around a wide-spread area, the silence of the emotional shock that was tangible amid the chaos, all of these led to a sensation that something was terribly wrong. All of that was shattered when another volunteer’s voice came through on the communication device, “I have another victim lying here, and another unconscious, there are 3 CPRs currently underway. No, make that 4 CPRs …”'

What Moshe Sa’adon and the other United Hatzalah medics witnessed that night is indescribable. Their commitment in the face of tragedy brought healing to the people of Elad. Their ongoing presence gives hope. Help support our campaign for an emergency response ambulance to honor the victims of terror whose lives were lost that evening and continue to protect the community as best we can.
