It presently encompasses a medical imaging department, treatment rooms, laboratory and more, and is operated by members of Shaare Zedek’s medical faculty.
Attending the ribbon-cutting ceremony were:
- President of the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress (EAJC) and Vice President of the World Jewish Congress (WJC), Mikhael Mirilashvili
- Chairman of Limmud FSU, Matthew Bronfman
- Health Minister, Yaakov Litzman
- Minister, Zev Elkin
- Founder of Yad Sarah, Rabbi Uri Lupolianski
- CEO of Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Professor Jonathan Halevi.
Addressing the guests, Frenkel proudly expressed, “It is my obligation and privilege to attend this event. I have been acquainted with Uri for many years and borne witness to the extraordinary kindness and charity that takes place here. It all starts and ends with good people who are devoted to the public. It is our hope that this place will become a leader and model in the quality of service that it provides to the public. Better service. Service with heart. With generosity and warmth. We want this medical centre to become a guiding light to others in the field of medicine.”
