The Doctor Gets a Passover Surprise

Wednesday, Apr 17 2019

Dr. Tamar Elram, director of Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus

Even professionals can’t always guess when they will deliver their babies. Dr. Tamar Elram, director of Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus, is herself an obstetrician. Eleven years ago, she invited her entire extended family to her home for Passover. It might have been a bit much, even for the highly capable, overachieving Dr. Elram. But it was her fifth child, and she thought she had everything under control until she went into labor and had to leave family and guests to fend for themselves! “I was sorry to miss the fun with the family,” says Dr. Elram. “But I didn’t complain that someone else swept up the matzo crumbs.”
