International Committee

Eli Beer,
Jerusalem, President

Eli Beer is a social entrepreneur and the President and Founder of United Hatzalah of Israel. After witnessing a bus bombing in Jerusalem as he was walking home from school at the age of six, Eli was inspired by this traumatic experience to pursue a career that would allow him to save lives. Eli became a certified EMT at 15, and began volunteering on an ambulance in order to follow his life’s mission. What he found, though, was that when someone needed fast medical attention, unfortunately, the ambulance was unable to arrive in time due to traffic, congestion, and the distance from which the ambulance was dispatched.

Chairman, NY

 
Mark is also the International Chairman of United Hatzalah, which is a distributed network of volunteer first responders in Israel.  By activating the first responder closest to a trauma (heart attack, accident, choking incident or stroke), United Hatzalah volunteers can arrive at a victim's side in those first minutes that separate life from death.  The work of United Hatzalah is described here:https://www.ted.com/talks/eli_beer_the_fastest_ambulance_a_motorcycle?language=en. 
 
Mark is also the co-founder and Chairman of the African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), which enables primary healthcare throughout Africa -- by supporting the work of the Christian medical missionaries who provide so much of the treatment of patients throughout the continent.  AMHF supports maternity care, AIDS clinics, TB treatment, pediatric orthopedic services, dental care, the training of physicians and surgeons and much more in South Sudan, Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and elsewhere in Africa. 
 
Mark is also the author of many books and articles on subjects including intellectual history, education, basketball and the Biblical Jonah.  He lives in New York City with his wife, Rabbi Erica Gerson, and their three children.
