"... Since Ezra Lemarpeh's inception, Rav Firer has been investing great efforts on its development and growth, sparing himself no..."
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.
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.
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.
