Rabbi Ovadia Isakov, a Chabad emissary in the Dagestan  region in Russia who was shot and seriously injured, landed on Thursday 25/7/2013 at 1:30 AM in Israel – and was hospitalized in the intensive care unit at the Beilinson Hospital in Petah-Tikva. According to the hospital, his condition is serious and his life is still in danger.

  The profitable horseracing industry has challenged and recruited breeders and scientists to achieve the maximal potential for a horse competing in a horserace to achieve the best possible performance. The search for ways to improve the range of movements, strengthen the muscles and maximize the stability of the horse was the incentive to produce an electric treadmill that operates under water.

As part of the International Diamond Week at the Israeli Diamond Exchange (IDE), an honorary membership was awarded to Ezra LeMarpe chairman Rabbi Elimelech Firer in a celebratory Passover reception, in recognition of his lifetime achievement.

The cornerstone laying ceremony for the Ezra Lemarpeh Center in Sderot was conducted in the square adjacent to Sderot’s main sports hall. Participating in the event were Rabbi Elimelech Firer,  the Chairman of Ezra Lemarpeh, the Mayor Mr. David Buskila, the Minister Mr. David Dichter, the Deputy Health Minister Rabbi Litzman, the Attorney General Mr. Weinstein , the Chairman of the Friends of Ezra Lemarpeh, Mr. Yigal Ahuvi, dignitaries, donors and public figures

Rabbi Elimelech Firer, the Belz hassid who never received a formal medical education, started a whole new medical field. Carmel Luzzati met him to hear about the upcoming launch of a new medical rehabilitation center in Sderot – and also bumped into former Mossad Chief, Meir Dagan, who is recovering from his recent operation.

When Rabbi Shalom Shnitzler embarked on his journey to far-away Australia, no one foresaw the tragic end of his mission.

Under the Ezra Lemarpeh ambulance system, the ambulance drivers are prepared to extend help and assistance to the residents of the South during the  entire year and particularly during these days, when the residents of the South are undergoing difficult times during the Pillar of Defense operation.

On the patients’ path towards recovery, there is more than one intersection, and it would seem that I stand at the other intersection, the one that the Israeli medical community passes over, usually without knowing of its existence.
