Hadassah Hospital Welcomes First Baby of Jewish New Year 5781

Friday, Sep 25 2020

Adel Toubul is the first baby to be born at Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem in the Jewish New Year 5781. Mom Maia and Dad Aviel are happy they drove in from Ramla to have their third child in Jerusalem.

“Just like the two previous times we came to Jerusalem, it was worth the trip, and very empowering,” Maia related with excitement, as she recovered in Hadassah’s maternity department. Last year, between Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem and Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus, there were 14,000 births.

Adel’s siblings, ages 3 and 5, have been asking for a few months when the baby will be “ready.” Now they are eagerly waiting for her to come home.

Listen to "The Midwives,” an inspiring episode of The Branch podcast that explores how, amidst the COVID-19 crisis in Israel, two midwives – a Jewish Israeli and an Arab Israeli – work together to calm mothers bringing new life into an uncertain world.
