Elijah Gerson’s Bar Mitzvah Fundraiser

Elijah Gerson's Bar Mitzvah Fundraiser

Message to sponsors

Dear Friends and Family, I hope you will consider making a donation to United Hatzalah of Israel in honor of me becoming Bar Mitzvah on November 4th. I picked this organization because it saves lives. I was in Israel this summer and visited the headquarters. I could see with my own eyes that United Hatzalah really does save lives 24/7. I was in the dispatch room, where they take all the emergency calls, and I saw that at that very moment they had at least 15 calls going on. While we were there, there was a big car accident near the headquarters and I saw volunteers run to help.

I also met a volunteer who had just saved somebody’s life with an epipen. My goal is to raise $54,000. This is enough to buy the souped up motorcycle that can smoothly drive off-road in conditions such as desert and dirt roads. (In the photo you can see this kind of bike. That’s me in the back.) The motorcycle will go to a volunteer that needs it to save lives. The money also pays for the medical equipment that goes on the back of the motorcycle and help the volunteer save lives.
