The Haas Family Rosh Hashana Lifesaving Campaign 

Please help us in raising funds to support United Hatzalah of Israel

Message aux sponsors

As you know United Hatzalah is near and dear to our hearts, seeing how their volunteer medics run out from their day jobs or night in bed to answer around 2000 medical emergencies every day! One critical piece of equipment that only around 60% of their volunteers have is a defibrillator, which helps jump-start the heart in times of cardiac arrest. We want to help change that as this critical piece of medical equipment and the speed it is applied to the patient is the difference between life and death and should be in the hands of every volunteer. Please join us in our campaign to sponsor eight defibrillators or more, and one will be our matching gift!

We just read about a 3-year-old at a picnic that suddenly went into cardiac arrest and was saved due to the speed of United Hatzalah volunteers and the possession of a defibrillator. How appropriate a gift as we go into Rosh Hashana and ask for another year of life, that we give to save another life or even many lives through our giving and partnering with a United Hatzalah volunteer. Each defibrillator is $2500 and we would love for you to join us in our campaign to help save more lives. Story and picture of boy -below.

Inspiring rescue story of a 3-year-old child:

United Hatzalah volunteer EMT Raphael Alima quickly responded to an alert in Ashdod about an unconscious three-year-old child at a park who was suffering from cardiac arrest. He happened to be at the same park with his own children and family. they performed life-saving actions, including CPR, defibrillation, and assisted ventilation. Within two minutes of administering a shock, the child's pulse returned. The united efforts of first responders ensured the child's recovery, and he regained consciousness shortly after arriving at the hospital.

I am proud to say that our volunteers were there on the scene, and this boy Asher is now completely back to normal and will be released from the hospital next week. The doctor said that if it wasn't for that shock from the defibrillator that he quickly received, he wouldn’t have made it, but now he is in the hospital doing well and smiling. Stories like these remind me why it is so important that all our volunteers have a defibrillator. Currently, we have 60% of our volunteers equipped with defibrillators, and I hope in the future we will have 100%.
