On October 7, Jews across the globe learned of the terrifying news that Israel was under deadly attack by Hamas, a militant group in the Palestinian territories and one of the territories’ two major political parties, and that the country had declared war. To date, over 1,400 Israelis — civilians and soldiers, Jews, Muslims and victims of other faiths — and hundreds of others who have suffered life-changing injuries have been killed.
On a special two-part episode of the Hadassah On Call podcast, you'll hear Hadassah's At War: Heal Israel Now briefing, which takes you behind the scenes at the Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO), which has been providing critical care to soldiers, civilians and displaced families since the onset of the war.
Tune in to learn about Hadassah's war response efforts from Hadassah leaders, including Prof. Yoram Weiss, director general of HMO; Estelle Rubinstein, head of social work at HMO; and Dr. Manno Saks, president of Hadassah International; among others, as well as from Michal Elon, a brave nurse who was treated at Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem for the injuries she sustained while risking her life to save a severely injured soldier.
