With a heavy heart, we announce the passing of one of our volunteer EMTs Dana Ben Shoshan, from the Galilee chapter. Dana, who volunteers as an EMT and a midwife, was killed Thursday morning in a car crash while driving her private car on her way home from the hospital where she worked as a nurse. The crash took place near the southern entrance of Safed (Tzfat).

Dana, a wife, and mother of four, was critically injured in the crash and later succumbed to her injuries. Dana was a member of the Adele and Joel Sandberg’s Women’s Initiative.

The leadership and volunteers of United Hatzalah greatly mourn her passing and are giving their full support to Dana’s family. The Psychotrauma and Crisis Response Unit are working with the husband, who is also a volunteer, and the rest of the family to help them through this difficult time.

In an effort to support the family, a special fundraising page has been opened where people can make a donation. 100 percent of all the money raised will go directly to the family.
