When Hamas attacked Israel on October 7 and war ensued, Hadassah responded immediately. As the war continues and in the wake of Iran's unprecedented attack on Israel, the threat to Israel has grown. So, too, have the needs on the ground, including critical expansion of our capacity to treat mass casualties and serve as a wartime hospital; comprehensive rehabilitative care through the completion of the Gandel Rehabilitation Center; addressing trauma with a continued mental health response; and providing students and faculty at our Youth Aliyah villages with psychological support. Thanks to our generous members and supporters, our hospitals and youth villages can continue to be ready and act swiftly to protect and heal the people of Israel.

We urgently need your support now. Every dollar makes a difference.

Hadassah’s Emergency Appeal FAQs

How can I help?
There is an urgent need for the kind of hard-won expertise in delivering wartime trauma care for which the Hadassah Medical Organization is well known. Your donation to Hadassah’s Heal Israel Now emergency campaign allows us to be ready in times of peace as well as times of war. With the continued aggression from Hamas and the new attacks from Iran, the need for high-priority items, including state-of-the-art equipment, devices and supplies for healing and saving the lives of some of Israel’s most seriously injured, has never been more urgent.
I’m a doctor/nurse. Can I volunteer at a Hadassah hospital?
Despite the dire situation, Hadassah hospitals are stable and running efficiently. Doctors, nurses and other staff are working nonstop, shoulder-to-shoulder. Still, as doctors and nurses are being called to IDF reserve duty, there may come a time when additional personnel, including those who provide psychosocial support, are needed. At this time, we are asking certified doctors and nurses who are interested in potential future volunteer opportunities to add their information to this database
Are you accepting equipment donations?
While equipment donations can have a significant impact, there are stringent requirements related to condition, FDA approval, maintenance service, and model and manufacturer information that can be challenging to meet. Therefore, HMO generally prefers donations of funds to allow it to manage the procurement process more efficiently and allocate resources where they are most needed.
What makes Hadassah’s response unique?
Hadassah’s hospital system, as Jerusalem’s only Level-1 Trauma Center and one of only six such centers in all of Israel, is treating many of the most severely wounded patients who require complex, specialized care. Both campuses, Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem and Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus, are equipped with helipads for emergency transports. The Hadassah Medical Organization (HMO) is preparing for the long-term requirements of patient care and anticipates that every patient being treated in our hospitals will need rehabilitation. HMO has expedited the launch of two state-of-the-art underground emergency facilities within the nearly completed Gandel Rehabilitation Center at Mount Scopus and the Sara Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower at Ein Kerem, both of which are uniquely positioned to operate under extreme conditions. Additionally, HMO has launched an emergency psychiatric ER service for adults and children, given the many citizens suffering from severe anxiety and trauma responses, and is offering mental health outreach to kibbutzim in the Jerusalem region.
