Ambucycle Event  1

United Hatzalah Ambucycle

United Hatzalah is the creator of the "Ambucycle” - an ambulance motorcycle which beats through Israel traffic to save a life. The average response time is under 3 minutes. In Israel, some people wait for at least 30 minutes to get an ambulance, and some especially in cardiac arrest emergencies, don't make it. Our volunteers save lives fast, 100% free and first on the scene. Help the Meshadi community donate a life-saving ambucycle this May at the huge dedication event commemorating Yom Yerushalayim. (For more info you can look up the Founder, Eli Beer on TED talks about this innovation). Contact Robin (Zaroovabeli) Rendel to donate or get involved at Robin@israelrescue.org..

Rules for Speakers at the Didan

It has recently become apparent that at didans many people do not stay for the service. They give their condolences and leave immediately as they do not want to stay for a long service. The Shaare Shalom Synagogue Board would like to remind the community of the rules for speakers at a didan:
1) Total time allotted to speakers is 30 minutes
2) Maximum number of speakers is 3 with priority given to our Rabbis. We hope that this will result in a shorter service and better attendance at the didans. Please note that these rules only apply to didans and Not the “haft” (7th day) or “See” (30th day) which are usually attended by close family and friends and where it's more appropriate for family members etc to speak. The Shaare Shalom Synagogue Board thanks the community for their cooperation. Submitted by Ephraim Aminoff.
