On November 6th,

to Rambam Health Care Campus and pledged their readiness to be

voted with their feet by touring the Emergency Room and the Sammy Ofer
Fortified Underground Emergency Hospital. "I’ve spent
several years trying to learn best practices in emergency department

delegation was sent to Rambam by the American Physicians Fellowship for
Medicine in Israel<http://www.apfmed.org/> (APF, est. 1950). The
organization’s flagship program gives fellowships to Israeli doctors
for advanced clinical training in the USA and Canada. The APF also
annually sends members to Israel for an Emergency and Disaster
Management Course offered in conjunction with the Ministry of Health
and the IDF Medical Corps.
The APF is the
only North American body designated by the State of Israel to maintain
an Emergency Medical Volunteer (EMV) Registry. Most recently, Registry
members took part in a nationwide Israeli drill testing the health care
system's preparedness for a massive earthquake. “Their response to the
simulated call-up was phenomenal," says APF Israel Director Amir
Blumenfeld, MD. "Sixty-eight physicians immediately volunteered to be
in Israel within forty-eight hours."
No end in sight for Gush Katif expellees
By JOSH HASTEN
Picture by Limor Edrey
It's been far too long without a remedy, and still there is no end in sight. Sitting
in her tiny caravan and looking up at the water stains and cracks in
the ceiling from the winter rain, Gush Katif expellee and current Nitzan
resident Rachel Saperstein has had enough.
Referring to her community as
a "refugee camp" Saperstein tells me with obvious frustration in her
voice during a recent interview that "it's time to leave."
72-year-old mother and grandmother, a New York native, along with her
husband Moshe - who lost an arm while serving in the IDF during the Yom
Kippur War, and was then severely wounded again in a terror attack near
their Neve Dekalim home in 2002 - are among the over 60 percent of
former Gush Katif residents who, seven-and-a-halfyears after the
expulsion, are still not living in permanent homes.
This normally bubbly, always cheerful, laughing and optimistic Gush Katif pioneer is not smiling anymore.
angry, I'm depressed, I'm frustrated, I want to get going and build my
house, but I can't do it. I keep hearing from them [the Tenufa
Authority, formerly known as the Sela Authority, which is responsible
for assisting Gush Katif families with resettlement] - 'next month, next
month,' but nothing is moving."
to Saperstein, she and her husband have already acquired a parcel of
land in the Lachish area, home to many other former Gush Katif families,
have architectural plans and have picked a builder.
The only thing holding them back is the lack of a permit for their new home.
"We're not the only ones," she says. "Many of our neighbors are also still waiting for permits." [continue....]
In response to rising global anti-Semitism and threats to Israel's
security, we declare our support of Israel's right to exist as the
historical national homeland for Jews, with Jerusalem as her undivided
capital. We further support Israel's right to retain secure and
defensible borders for the protection of her citizens against foreign
enemies and terror insurgents.
We recognize Israel as the most democratic nation in the Middle East, a
nation that guarantees "complete equality of social and political
rights to all its inhabitants, irrespective of religion, race or sex"
and pledges to "safeguard the Holy Places of all religion." (Quoted
from the 1948 Israeli Declaration of Independence). Sharing with us
these precious democratic and Judeo-Christian values, Israel has been
and must remain America's closest ally in the Middle East.
For the last 3,000 years, despite foreign occupiers and attackers,
Israel has been the declared homeland of one people: the Jews. The
Babylonians in the sixth century BCE and the Romans in 70 CE destroyed
the Temple and scattered the Jewish people. Subsequent empires have
appropriated the land. Yet, none of them, including the Arab Muslim
occupiers, have ever called Israel their homeland, or Jerusalem their
national capital. Finally, in 1948, the Jews reclaimed their nation,
with Jerusalem as its capital. But from 1948 to 1967, Jordan closed off
the east Jerusalem and the West Bank from Israel, stopping any Jews
from visiting their holy sites. In the 1967 Six Day War, Israel
re-captured all of Jerusalem and brought her undivided capital under a
sovereign Jewish rule. And thus it shall remain as Israel's eternal
The Bible specifically mentions the name "Jerusalem" nearly 800 times,
linking the city with the faith and history of the Jewish people. In
contrast, the birth of Islam 1,400 years ago took place outside the
land of Israel. The name of Jerusalem does not appear even once in
Islam's holy book, the Qur'an.
Despite over a century of Arab rejectionism and wars large and small
that have needlessly taken thousands of Jewish and Arab lives, a secure
Israel must continue to be the center of our hopes and prayers.
"[The] heart and soul of the Jewish people engenders the thought that
if you want one simple word to symbolize all of Jewish history, that
word would be 'Jerusalem.'"
In view of the above, on May 23, 2010, at the Boston March for
Jerusalem, we declared and affirmed our support of Israel and her
undivided capital, Jerusalem.
