A Tribute to Israeli Nurse Tova Kararo

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Tova Kararo, the Israeli nurse who was set on fire at a Tel Aviv-area clinic by an elderly mentally ill man. 

“I am deeply horrified by the tragic murder of Tova Kararo. As an organization strongly committed to nursing and nurses since our founding, Hadassah joins the global community in honoring her life. May her memory be for a blessing,” said Ellen Hershkin, national president of Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, from Hadassah Headquarters in New York.

“We are shocked by the violence,” said Nurse Akram Said-Ahmad at a Wednesday tribute event at Hadassah Ein Kerem.

“In the name of all the nurses here at Hadassah, I express our shock and distress,” Hadassah Ein Kerem Director Professor Yoram Weiss said at the tribute.

Hadassah Denounces Outrageous UNESCO Resolution

Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, stands with Israel in the face of attacks on both its sovereignty and security. The Palestinian denial of any Jewish connection to its holiest sites is an attempt to rewrite history, and with such an outrageous resolution passing through the body that represents all nation states, this is an embarrassment of epic proportions.
