Recently, Rabbi Eckstein and other Israeli dignitaries were on hand for the dedication of Hadassah University Medical Center’s new trauma department in Jerusalem.

The Fellowship helped to fund the building of the new trauma department, and then allocated additional funds to build and equip two ICU trauma rooms within the Trauma Surgical Intensive Care Unit.

Following the dedication ceremony and unveiling of The Fellowship‘s donor plaque, Rabbi Eckstein toured the new trauma department.

While there, Rabbi Eckstein also visited a 16-year-old terror victim, who is recovering at the hospital from critical injuries suffered during a bus bombing in Jerusalem on April 18.

While addressing those gathered, Rabbi Eckstein said, “We are privileged at The Fellowship to be a part [of this] and we want to tell you that we value your holy work, and we bless you with much continued success.”
