Prof. Rein explains the "A Heart for Peace " Program Prof. Jean- Jacques Rein, Director of Pediatric Cardiology, presented the "A Heart for Peace" program, a French-Israeli collaborative project, whose objective is to provide life-saving specialized care and surgery for Palestinian infants and children with congenital heart defects. Mme Hidalgo, who last visited Hadassah in 2005, reaffirmed the support of the City of Paris for this program, and noted that it has already sponsored operations for two children this year. Two prestigious receptions have been held in support of the initiative, the last of which was on October 30, 2013 in the presence of Anne Hidalgo and Pierre Schapira. Specific assistance was also offered by Pierre Aidenbaum and Patrick Klugman.

Plans had been made for the delegation to visit the Intensive Care Unit, but due to an emergency which served as a grave reminder that they were in a hospital, this visit had to be cancelled. Instead, the delegation proceeded to the Department of Pediatric Cardiology, where they were able to meet the family of a child who was scheduled to receive heart surgery.

The tour concluded at the Abbell Synagogue with its world renowned Chagall Windows where the group learned about the fascinating symbolism of these works of art.
